Welcome to the International Workshop on Polyelectrolytes in Chemistry, Biology and Technology 2018.

The workshop to be organized in NTU, Singapore from 12 to 14 March 2018 will cover both fundamental and applied aspects of simple and complex polyelectrolyte systems. The workshop will have a clear interdisciplinary character including chemical, biological and technological aspects. The workshop covers fundamental and applied aspects of polyelectrolyte systems as defined in a broad sense including all highly charged synthetic and biological polymers and aggregates formed from surfactants in aqueous medium also including polyelectrolyte-polymer interactions and self-assembly. Some of the topics of this interdisciplinary event, which is not exclusive, are:

  • Theory and Simulations of Polyelectrolyte Systems
  • Polyelectrolytes in Biological Systems
  • Charged Colloidal Systems
  • Technological/Industrial Applications of Polyelectrolyte Systems


The workshop will present a great opportunity and platform for scientists to discuss broadly current developments in the polyelectrolyte field. This is defined in a broad sense as aqueous solution systems with strong electrostatic interactions such as linear biological and synthetic polyelectrolytes, charged colloidal systems and their interactions with polymers, proteins and different charged species. The meeting follows the highly successful meeting "Polyelectrolytes in Chemistry, Biology and Technology", held here at NTU in Singapore, January 26-28, 2015.


The workshop will include invited and contributed talks as well as posters.

We welcome all interested faculty, researchers and students to sign-up for this exciting workshop!
