2020 100 Years Macromolecular Chemistry

The field of macromolecular science celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. Within this century, polymers have greatly changed human life, based on the pioneering macromolecular hypothesis of Hermann Staudinger published in Berichte der deutschen chemischen Gesellschaft in June 1920. The German Chemical Society (GDCh) Division Macromolecular Chemistry has initiated an international symposium aligned with several activities organized by societies and publishers around the “Year of Polymers”. Wiley is celebrating and supporting this by initiating a range of activities and promotions throughout the year.
