A Mechanistic Journey Through Industrial Chemistry
Mechanism provides a fundamental roadmap for the structures of intermediates and the transition states which connect them to starting materials and products. Mechanistic insights have lead to discoveries in catalysis and performance chemistries, including those for selective oxidation, cationic polymerization, alkylation and gelation for applications in acrylonitrile production, lubricant additives and controlled release.  Examples of these innovations and future possibilities for research and teaching in industrial catalysis and green chemistry will be presented.
