    Dr. Eli M. Pearce was President of American Chemical Society. He served as Dean of the Faculty of Science and Art at Polytechnic Institute of New York University, as well as a professor of chemistry and chemical engineering. He was Director of the Polymer Research Institute, also in Brooklyn. At present, he consults for the Polymer Research Institute. A prolific author and researcher, he edited the Journal of Polymer Science (Chemistry Edition) for 25 years and was an active member of many professional organizations.

    Bob A. Howell, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Chemistry and Director of the Center for Applications in Polymer Science at Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. He received his PhD in physical organic chemistry from Ohio University in 1971. His research interests include flame retardants for polymeric materials, new polymeric fuel-cell membranes, polymerization techniques, thermal methods of analysis, polymer-supported organoplatinum antitumor agents, barrier plastic packaging, bioplastics, and polymers from renewable sources. A particular current research interest is the development of nontoxic, environmentally friendly flame retardants based on renewable biosources.
