Opening Plenary Talk - Polymer reaction engineering in the origins of life: How to get from synthetic rubber to chemical evolution
May 20-25, 2018
How does a chemical engineer go from synthetic rubber production to origins of life research and still be in polymer reaction engineering? The answer is simple: There are significant problems in chemical evolution (and likely in many other fields of research) where the tools of polymer reaction materials can be applied very effectively. This talk documents two of them.
