Expert has more than 30 years experience in chemistry, life science, research, and engineering. While at Monsanto, he made significant contributions to building materials, sweeteners, electronic materials, the synthesis and characterization of new polymers, biotechnology, and energy research. His major achievements include work with novel chemistries--aqueous, non-aqueous, solventless, and their complete systems. His work on the stability of enzymes with non-aqueous polymers is a noted advancement, both in polymer chemistry and enzymology.

applied chemistry

Expert synthesized and characterized, by NMR spectroscopy, ultra pure acetals and devised methods to reduce the formation of undesirable acetals in the production of thermosetting acrylic polymers containing pendant methylol and alkyl methylol groups. He pioneered DAP/polyepoxy interpenetrating polymer network resins for LED and adhesive applications.

polymer modification chemistry
