Polymers are everywhere.
They’re in our packaging, our money, our cosmetics…and according to some studies, even in our drinking water. For all the “bad press” polymers – basically chains of repeated molecules – get, they’re doing a lot of unrecognized good. In fact, one of the most important ways polymers affect our daily lives is in the purification, not contamination, of our drinking water!
Advanced polymers are one of the most exciting technologies in chemistry today. Suitable for a wide range of applications, polymers are literally the building blocks of our lives; they provide support, structure, and durability to thousands of products we interact with each and every day. Advancements in polymer technology have the potential to revolutionize medical treatment, space travel, fuel consumption, and more.
