PEL Associates Awards
In Pure and Applied Polymer Chemistry

Pure Polymer Chemistry

Prof. M. Brookhart and his DuPont Co. team members have won the PEL Associates Award for the best contributions in pure polymer chemistry in 1996.

The prize is for their joint work in developing a novel approach to new and useful olefinic polymers using late transition metal Pd (II) and Ni (II) catalysts.

The Award consists of this recognition of achievement, a certificate, and a check for $150 to the U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Department of Chemistry to be used for books for polymer chemistry students.

Prof. Brookhart and the DuPont team were chosen from among several hundred contributors to catalysis research worldwide.


Applied Polymer Chemistry

Prof. C. Macosko has won the PEL Associates Award for the best contributions in applied polymer chemistry in 1996.

The prize is for his work in developing a better understanding of the mechanism of reactive processing and compatibilization.

The Award consists of this recognition of achievement, a certificate, and a check for $150 to the University of Minnesota, Department of Chem. Engineering to be used for books for polymer engineering students.

Prof. Macosko was chosen from among several hundred contributors to alloy and blend research worldwide.

THESE RESEARCHERS HAVE OUR SALUTE FOR OUTSTANDING AND IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTIONS TO POLYMER SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
