The Years After the Retirement of Hermann Staudinger: Research on Solution Properties in the Physicochemical Group of Walther Burchard

Part of the Advances in Polymer Science book series (POLYMER, volume 261)


In 1954, Professor Elfriede Husemann became the successor of Professor Staudinger and took the chair for Macromolecular Chemistry in Freiburg. To prove that her enzymatically synthesized amylose is a covalently linked macromolecule she needed a reliable method for molar mass determination and expanded the mainly chemical research towards physicochemical investigations.
