Smart Polymer Systems 2010 was iSmithers’ inaugural international conference on stimuli responsive polymers. These material systems repeatedly dramatically react to small changes in their external environment in a predictable manner.

With an immensely wide range of potential applications; biomembranes, intelligent textiles, tissue engineering and smart coatings to name a few – the same thing that makes these materials so exciting, is also the barrier to their commercialisation. 

The conference highlighted the most recent advances and developments in this rapidly evolving field and provided attendees with a broad and comprehensive outlook on the emerging trends, perspectives, and limitations of the technological applications of various classes of stimuli-responsive polymer materials.

These proceedings cover presentations from an impressive panel of speakers from industry and academia including Unilever, Procter & Gamble, DSM, MIT, Duke, Stanford and Clarkson Universities who showcased the scope of these "smart" materials, their potential applications and how you might capitalise on this emerging technology.
