Dream to reality?


Plastics pioneers had great aspirations for their new materials. Roland Barthes called plastics “a miraculous substance . . . a transformation of nature”. Serendipity, careful experimentation and entrepreneurial skills have all played significant roles in the development of modern plastics. This presentation will assess whether the visions of key early pioneers such as Leo Baekeland have been realised today.
