Staudinger’s Concept on Polymer Science and the Impact of Ziegler-Natta Catalyst on Polymer Technology
In good olden days, like all of us, scientists had to handle simple problems of life style but with change in life style, the demand of present human society has increased manifold over the years. Those were the days when demands of life style were not that complex; solutions could generally be realized with simple available items; and scientists generally gave attention to simple molecules and phenomena to seek solutions for earthy problems. But today’s situation is quite different when human society is trying to harness Nature to its comfort zone and looking for habitation in the space. Nature may look to be simple but actually it has to process host of functions meticulously through numerous complex material processes 24x7. Thus, in order to meet the demands of modern life style, materials science cannot remain satisfied with mere handling of only simple molecules. Necessity is the mother of invention; and that is how the concept of macromolecules crept into the cradle of Chemical Science for this Physical World. In fact, one of the most important classes of material science emerged in modern times is the macromolecular science or polymer science. The field of Polymer science has networked virtually with all branches of natural science including bioscience and technology to help carry forward the cause of human endeavor for betterment of life.
