By Gary Patterson

This sequel to A Prehistory of Polymer technological know-how starts with the Faraday dialogue of 1935 on Polymerization. Patterson then examines the striking upward push and institution of polymer technological know-how after 1935 from the point of view of the emergence of robust highbrow leaders. whereas adequate biographical element is gifted to achieve an appreciation for the function performed by means of each one chief, the emphasis of this quantity is at the key thoughts linked to every one person and the way the neighborhood embraced those leaders.

Starkweather (1914-) of DuPont. Karl Ziegler (1898-1973, Nobel 1963) revolutionized the polymerization of olefins by the use of alkali metals and alkali-alkyls. His works on polybutadiene and polyisoprene were great examples of paradigm defining work. One of the most interesting scientists that appears in the discussion of polyisoprene is James B. Conant (1893-1978) of Harvard. Although this was a very minor part of Conant’s overall research program, it helped to inspire Wallace Carothers to pursue polymer science!

During very high pressure reactions. S. Marvel. Interestingly, the very old work of Marcellin Berthelot (1827-1907) was still being quoted in 1939. He may have usually been wrong, but he was very busy. V. Lebedev (1874-1934) and many coworkers. N. S. Medvedev (1891-1970). The Russian tradition in polymer chemistry is early and important. N. Ipatieff (1867-1952), immigrated to the United States in 1931. He was elected to the US National Academy of Sciences in 1939. He established an important research laboratory at Northwestern University for the study of high pressure and catalyzed reactions (Fig.
