IRaP 2024

The 15th International Symposium on Ionizing Radiation and Polymers, IRaP 2024, will take place in Brazil from 28th October to 1st November 2024 under the theme of ‘Radiation Processing of Polymers for Promoting the Sustainable Development Goals’.  The symposium isjointly organized by the Comisión Nacional de Energía Atómica (CNEA, Argentina), and the Comissão Nacional de Energia Nuclear (CNEN, Brazil).

The conference will cover the following main topics:

  • Radiation processing of polymers and sustainable development goals
  • Fundamentals on ionizing radiations interactions with polymers
  • Polymer ageing, chemical structure and properties modifications
  • Polymers for packaging, food, health, biotechnology and space application
  • Design of new material using ionizing radiations: nanostructures and nanocomposites
  • Crosslinking, curing and surface treatment and formation of hydrogels
  • Biopolymers
  • Polymers recycling
  • Modification of polymers using swift heavy ions
  • Radiation processing of natural polymers
  • Emerging technologies and development of industrial applications
  • Instruments and installation for irradiation of polymers
