ABSTRACT
Staudinger, Hermann (1881-1965) was a German chemist who proposed the theory of macromolecules in the 1920's. For his study of these huge, chainlike molecules, which opened the door to high-polymer chemistry and the development of plastics and synthetic fibers, he was awarded the 1953 Nobel Prize in chemistry.
