Page 10 - Dear Colleague, Leave the concept of large molecules well alone . . . there can be no such thing as a macromolecule. It is saidt that this advice was given to Hermann Staudinger just 45 years ago, after a major lecture devoted to his evidence in favor of the macromolecular concept . Today it seems almost impossible that this violent opposition to the idea of the existence of polymer molecules could...
