Polymers: The second century
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the revolutionary article published by the German chemist Hermann Staudinger (1881–1965), entitled “Über Polymerisation” (Ber. Dtsch. Chem. Ges. 53 (6) (1920) 1073–1085), which is considered as the beginning of macromolecular chemistry and polymer science in general.
