This episode features Jeffery C. Bricker, Ph.D., winner of the 2011 ACS Award for Creative Invention sponsored by the ACS Corporation Associates. Bricker’s pioneering work helped produce catalysts that are key ingredients in cleaner detergents and gasoline. One of Bricker’s catalysts also significantly reduced the cost of producing styrene and polypropylene, two of the most widely used plastics in the world.
