By Gary Patterson Carnegie Mellon University

Polymer technological know-how is now an lively and thriving neighborhood of scientists, engineers and technologists, yet there has been a time, no longer goodbye in the past, while there has been no such neighborhood. The prehistory of polymer technological know-how is helping to supply key insights into present matters and historic difficulties. the tale could be divided into an historical interval ( from Greek occasions to the construction of the molecular consensus), a nascent interval (from Dalton to Kekule to van’t Hoff) and a interval of paradigm formation and controversy (from Staudinger to Mark to Carothers). The prehistory concludes with an account of the epochal 1935 dialogue of the Faraday Society on “Polymerization”. After this assembly an lively group engaged in attempting to remedy the relevant difficulties outlined by means of the discussions.
