Ziegler, Karl (1898-1973) was a German scientist whose improved methods of producing plastics resulted in many of the materials that revolutionized life in the 1900's. Italian chemist Giulio Natta further developed Ziegler's processes, and they were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1963.
