  • Professor, Department of Chemistry, Carnegie Mellon University Dr. Matyjaszewski developed atom transfer radical polymerization, or ATRP, a way of combining small molecules called monomers into blocks of polymers, which are plastics made up of long molecules.

  • But then there is competition between prelife and life for the basic feedstock of monomers.


  • Polymers of basic molecules may have flexible bonds, which allows a chain of monomers to assume a shape that is determined by interactions between monomers.
