Chains of opportunity : the University of Akron and the emergence of the polymer age, 1909-2007 by Mark D Bowles( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While "plastics" was a one-word joke in the 1967 movie The Graduate, plastics and other polymers have never been a laughing matter at the University of Akron, with its world-renowned College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering. Chains of Opportunity: The University of Akron and the Emergence of the Polymer Age, 1909-2007 tells the story of the university's rise to prominence in the field, beginning with the world's first academic course in rubber chemistry almost a century ago." "Chains of Opportunity explores the university's pioneering contributions to rubber chemistry, polymer science, and polymer engineering. It traces the school's interaction with Akron rubber giants such as Goodyear and Firestone, recounts its administration of the federal government's synthetic rubber program during World War II, and describes its role in the development and professionalization of the academic discipline in polymers. The University of Akron has been an essential force in establishing the polymer age that has become a pervasive part of our material lives, in everything from toys to biotechnology."--book jacket

Trial use of the ALLP French program at the University of Akron, 1963-64 by Theodore H Mueller( Book )

3 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A 1-year programed course in beginning french tested the feasibility of programed learning and isolated those problems peculiar to teaching on the college and adult level. "The allp programed beginning french course," which specified the oral skills only, was the main pedagogical device used. The results of the pilot program supported the belief that programed learning is feasible on the college level. The results obtained, especially in the acquisition of speech habits, suggest that the program might be applied in high school with the supervision of a knowledgeable french teacher. Yet the first trial use pointed out areas in which the program needed improvements, revisions, and additions. Related information may be found in ed 010 488. (gd)
Revisions of the ALLP French program and second trial use at the University of Akron, 1964-65 by Theodore H Mueller( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revisions of "the allp french program" (a 1-year programed course for the college and adult level emphasizing oral skills) and the results of a second trial use of the revised program were reported. The revised french program was designed to overcome the shortcomings of the original program and sought to be more effective, less time consuming, and more acceptable to the students. The question of total self-instruction versus various combinations of class and laboratory situations was considered. Several possibilities of staffing the class and laboratory were considered. Trial use of "the revised allp french program" proved quite successful on the college level, and the dropout rate was significantly reduced. Although reliance on self-instruction was reduced and a greater role assigned to the instructor, the program promises eventually to accommodate large classes at the elementary level of language instruction without affecting the excellence of results. The program also promises the use of staff time with greater efficiency, thus reducing instructional costs. Related information may be found in ed 010 487. (gd)

The effect of chemical additives on the synthesis of ethanol. Technical progress report No. 8, June 16, 1989--September 15, 1989( )

6 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this research is to elucidate the role of various chemical additives on ethanol synthesis over Rh- and Ni-based catalysts. Chemical additives used for this study will include S, P, Ag, Cu, Mn, and Na which have different lectronegativities. The effect of additives on the surface state of the catalysts, heat of adsorption of reactant molecules, reaction intermediates, reaction pathways, reaction kinetics, and product distributions is/will be investigated by a series of experimental studies of NO adsorption, reaction probing, study state rate measurement, and transient kinetic study. A better understanding of the role of additive on the synthesis reaction may allow us to use chemical additives to manipulate the catalytic properties of Rh- and Ni-based catalysts for producing high yields of ethanol from syngas
