Polymer chemistry experienced a golden age in the 1950s and ’60s as chemists discovered new catalysts that enabled them to make many new types of polymers. Since that time, few chemists have introduced as many new catalysts for polymer synthesis as Cornell University’s Geoffrey W. Coates, who is being lauded for his expertise in polymerization catalysis and for an innate ability to keep making new polymers from already well-known chemistry.
