RESEARCH ON POLYMERS

Polymer research, traditionally being biased toward physical function and material, begins with synthesis [1]. Synthesis must be practical and provide sufficient quantities. In parallel, the side products and structural defects must be carefully investigated. In the face of increasing populations and diminishing supplies of basic raw materials, research continues to focus on maintaining and improving living standards.

9.1 PURE RESEARCH

Pure research requires skill, intelligence, and training in order to be successful and yield a profit. It is also measurably free of pressure, and organized and directed with growing appropriations for research. The effect of synthesis in research enhances ...
