James Economy Wins American Chemical Society Mark Award

Professor James Economy, chairman of the materials science and engineering department at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, IL, USA and President of the IUPAC Macromolecular Division Committee (IV) from 1994-1997, has won the 1998 Herman F. Mark Polymer Chemistry Award. This award, sponsored by Dow Chemical Company, consists of an honorarium and a plaque and is presented by the ACS Division of Polymer Chemistry in recognition of outstanding research and leadership in polymer science.

Professor Economy has played a key role in macromolecular research and development during his 45-year career in industry and academia. His work has included the design and development of new polymer systems, such as liquid crystalline materials for structural uses, recyclable thermosetting resins, flame-resistant textiles, new fibers for environmental control, microelectronic devices, and inorganic preceramics. He has published over 170 papers and his name appears on 60 U.S. patents.
