High Polymer Research Group 2017 - The Role of Molecular Architecture in the Chemistry, Physics and Engineering of Macromolecules

The High Polymer Research Group (HPRG) is a charity whose objective is to ensure that leading-edge developments in polymer science and engineering are made available and fully discussed by industrial and academic researchers engaged in the field. We do this by organizing conferences that have been held annually since 1960.

As a member of the trustees, I assist in managing the annual event; the 2017 meeting is entitled The Role of Molecular Architecture in the Chemistry, Physics and Engineering of Macromolecules. Please do not hesitate to contact me, or any of the other members of the Trustees, if you have any questions about the HPRG.

2017: The Role of Molecular Architecture in the Chemistry, Physics and Engineering of Macromolecules

HPRG 57th Meeting
Sunday April 23rd – April 27th, 2017
Shrigley Hall Hotel, Pott Shrigley, Cheshire
Conference Chairmen: Prof. Nigel Clarke and Prof. Darrin Pochan

Diamond Light Source

We are pleased to have a strong association with STFC and the Diamond Light Source in particular. The Diamond Light Source is the UK’s only 3rd generation synchrotron. It is a powerful X-Ray source to perform experiments on the molecular and meso-scales. Our association with Diamond has been both scientifically interesting and productive. I am a Visiting Scientist at Diamond and a member of the Diamond Industrial Science Committee (DISCo). The Industrial Liaison Team can be contacted here.

KEY COLLABORATORS: UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK

I am a visiting professor at the University of Warwick and I am proud to be working with world-class people in the Departments of Polymer Chemistry (1) and Polymer Processing (2). There is also a thriving Polymer Club which links academia with Industry (5)

I have been collaborating with many researchers in Polymer Chemistry (1), especially the Scott Group (3). Presently I am working with Professor Pete Scott on novel polymers. More detail on this will appear here when released.

I am also very fortunate to be working with Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) (2) looking into the R&D of polymer processing. Professor Tony McNally (4) is a key collaborator in this field.

University of Leeds
PRESENT

KEY COLLABORATORS: UNIVERSITY OF LEEDS

I have a long-standing collaboration with Professor Kevin Roberts (1,2) and his group and, previously, with Professor John Sherwood (3) when he was at Strathclyde. This collaboration has spanned over three decades and it is hoped that there is much more to come.

I also have a fruitful collaboration with Professor Malcolm Povey in the Food Science Department (4). It is always interesting when different areas of research collide.
