PEL Associates Awards
In Pure and Applied Polymer Chemistry

Pure Polymer Chemistry

Dr. J. J. Schwab and coworkers at Edwards AFB and WPAFB have won the 1999 PEL Associates Award for the best contribution in pure polymer chemistry in 1997.

The prize is for their joint work in developing novel hybrid organic-inorganic nanoscale polyhedral silsesquioxane (POSS) reagents, and demonstrating them in derived elastomeric polyurethanes which have many desirable features.

The Award consists of this recognition of achievement, a certificate, and a check for $150 to the Edwards AFB Materials R & D Department to be used for books for their polymer chemistry library.

Dr. Schwab was chosen from among several hundred contributors to pure polymer chemistry research worldwide.

 


 

Applied Polymer Chemistry

Prof. E. Giannelis has won the 1999 PEL Associates Award for the best contribution in applied polymer chemistry in 1997.

The prize is for his work in developing new polymer composites with nanoscopic silicate minerals which exhibit improved properties with important industrial potential.

The Award consists of this recognition of achievement, a certificate, and a check for $150 to the Cornell University Department of Material Science and Engineering to be used for books for polymer chemistry students.

Prof. Giannelis was chosen from among several hundred contributors to applied polymer chemistry research worldwide.
