Innovation Frontiers in Industrial Chemistry: A Report on the Third Annual CHF-SCI Innovation Day, Warren G. Schlinger Symposium
Our Price: $6.00

Online version available (PDF)

Competition is becoming ever fiercer in the chemical industry as new firms from such emerging economies as China and India enter the market and as technological advances, potential new regulations, and rising energy and feedstock costs shrink profit margins. Companies manufacturing commodity products are particularly vulnerable to these forces. Yet chemical firms are also discovering that cooperation, even between competitors, is necessary for meeting today’s challenges.

Today’s market dilemmas and innovation systems are too complex for any one organization. Network building is therefore central to continued innovation. Successful networks must include competitors working in partnership. This report summarizes the third annual CHF–SCI Innovation Day and describes a variety of partnerships among chemical and materials firms that combine cooperation and competition in novel, forward-looking ways.

Squeezed in on all sides--including from raw material costs (which are at unprecedented highs), narrowing access to feedstocks, and growing competition in commodity markets--chemical firms must create new high-value materials and services to survive and profit. This report summarizes the second annual CHF-SCI Innovation Day and suggests solutions for current challenges based on this annual forum in which scientists and technology managers gather to explore frontier areas for the chemical industry. The industry's future, we argue, lies in a strategic "wager" on disruptive technologies, balanced by incremental steps to develop new feedstocks and manufacturing processes that yield novel materials with less environmental impact.

This is the second in a series of white papers to be produced by CHF's Center for Contemporary History and Policy.

Fifth Annual CHF-SCI
Research Frontiers for the Chemical Industry: Report on the Fifth Annual CHF-SCI Innovaiton Day Warren G. Schlesinger Symposium: 18 September 2008
Our Price: $6.00

Now in its 5th year the Chemical Heritage Foundation CHF-SCI Innovation Day and Warren G. Schlinger Symposium has had the most successful event in its short history. The key concern is to exchange and debate broad viewpoints on innovation in the chemical industry rather than to discuss scientific and technical details. The proceedings provide a unique opportunity for young industrial chemists to take a step back from their day-to-day operations to contemplate the bigger picture, expanding their outlooks into the broader social, economic, and political contexts that impinge on contemporary innovative activities in the chemical and molecular science industries. Panel summaries: Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering; Electronic Materials; Chemistry of Energy Sources; Health Materials; and Emerging Global Economies. Appendix I: Mapping the Future of Science and Innovation.
Introducing the Chemical Sciences: A CHF Reading List
Introducing the Chemical Sciences: A CHF Reading List7
Our Price: $7.00

This list of books and journals was put together initially in response to requests by many friends of the Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF), particularly those in the teaching profession. The CHF Staff began by selecting titles with an eye to their usefulness for teachers seeking to enrich their classroom presentations or for students seeking historical information for research projects. The list has grown until it has now become an introductory bibliography for general researchers.
Polymers and People: An Informal History
Polymers and People: An Informal History
Our Price: $8.00

This book seeks to show the public how polymers and people are the closest of partners in everyday life. It introduces Wallace Carothers and other scientists who developed plastics, rubbers, and resins. It also illustrates how polymers are fashioned and their increasing role in our future.
Scaling Up: Science, Engineering, and the American Chemical Industry
Scaling Up: Science, Engineering, and the American Chemical Industry
Our Price: $8.00

This tribute to the engineers who transformed laboratory reactions into large production facilities focuses on petroleum refining and penicillin production. The book accompanied the former CHF traveling exhibit by the same name.
Structures of Life
Structures of Life
Our Price: $8.00

This is the companion book to the former CHF traveling exhibit by the same name. Describing first the instruments and then the molecules, this work shows how instrumentation has helped chemistry and biology merge in the new science of molecular biology.

Corporate History and the Chemical Industries
Corporate History and the Chemical Industries: A Resource Guide
Our Price: $12.00

Three essays--on the historiography of the chemical process industries, on business archives, and on oral history in the corporate setting--provide the context for extensive annotated bibliographies in the three areas.
R&D Meets M&A
R&D Meets M&A: Proceedings of the 2003 Conference on Innovation and Creativity in Chemical R&D
Our Price: $12.00

R&D Meets M&A contains edited papers given by a group of senior executives, chief technology officers, economists, and business analysts at the Chemical Heritage Foundation on 29 April 2003. Together, these papers make the case that successful mergers require an expanded role for research divisions and should be driven by compatible innovation cultures. Looking to the future, only a combination of greater in-house R&D and increased use of joint ventures will improve the chemical industry's competitive standing, as it copes with emerging new markets and competing science-based businesses.
