ACS Award In Polymer Chemistry: Edmund M. (Ted) Carnahan

by Linda Wang
January 4, 2016 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 94, ISSUE 1

Sponsor: ExxonMobil Chemical

Citation: For the invention and development of olefin block copolymers made via chain shuttling catalysis, a gateway to new advanced polyolefins.

Current position: polyethylene and elastomers research fellow, Dow Chemical

Education: B.A., chemistry, Cornell University; Ph.D., inorganic chemistry, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Carnahan on his current scientific goals:“There are several long-standing challenges remaining in the polyolefins industry, and I’d really like to crack another one before hanging up my hat. It would also be fun to accomplish something in a completely different field of science, which is always possible at a company as large and diverse as Dow.”

What his colleagues say:“Carnahan is a transformative figure in polymer chemistry possessing unusual creativity, insight into the critical features of polymer structure, appreciation of marketplace opportunities, and rigorous adherence to scientific principles and methods.”—Clark Landis, University of Wisconsin, Madison
