About this product
- DescriptionInterest in preparing new polymers peaked about 1966. Since that time, industrial and government support for the synthesis and study of new polymers has steadily declined. Gone are the good days when government funds supported a great push to attain ulti- mate thermal stability for organic polymeric materials. Gone are the good days when many chemical companies, encouraged by the obvious potential for rewards, had great interest and provided support for preparing new polymers. We w often hear managers say we have eugh polymers or all we need to do is find additional and better ways to use existing polymers. The latter often in- cludes the statement, we can get the new materials that are wanted from polymer alloys or blends. Interest in preparing new momers has also waned, even though it is well recognized that momers with special functionality are greatly needed to fine-tune existing polymers for specific tasks. Shrinkage of interest in new momer and polymer research has t come about solely as a result of the obvious maturity of the polymers industry. Since uses for polymers continue to grow and there is still room for good concepts to study, lack of market growth and fields of study have probably t significantly contribu- ted to that shrinkage.
