BEIJING, July 3,2017
The International Polymer Colloids Group Conference(IPCG2017) was held in Arantzazu, Spain, on25th-30th June, 2017. More than 140 well-knownscholars from over 40 countries were invited, as well as experts from industrialcompanies, such as from BASF and Oriental Yuhong. One of the conferenceco-chairs of IPCG2017 is Dr. Willie Lau, a chiefscientist of Oriental Yuhong.
The International Polymer Colloid Group (IPCG) was established in 1972 toprovide a platform for academic and industrial researchers engaged in polymercolloids to communicate and share research results and innovative ideas. Sinceits founding, the organizers held IPCG in NorthAmerica or Europe every other year, withmore than 40 years of history. The global leading chemical experts hold the postof conference co-chairman in turn. The theme of this conference is the synthesisand performance studies of complex colloids, and the application of advancedcolloid monitoring techniques.
Polymer colloid is widely used in the coatings, adhesives, bio-medicine, foodand other fields. As the largest waterproof system providers in Asia, Oriental Yuhong has several long-term andin-depth scientific achievements. Prof. SerjiAmirkhanian, from South Carolina Asphalt Laboratory of Oriental Yuhong,made a speech of Polymer Modified Asphalt, a Non Aqueous Colloid, sharingthe research results and problems with the experts in the field all around theworld.
The doctoral student Hao Huang from LehighUniversity won a prize for the Best Academic Speech. His presentation isa cooperated research program of Oriental Yuhong and LehighUniversity. And another three scholars got the Poster Prize sponsored byOriental Yuhong.
