IBM Blog Covering Dr. Gavin Jones and his work

(Source:IBM Blog)-Dr. Gavin Jones, a computational chemist from Jamaica with a Ph.D. in Computational/Theoretical Organic Chemistry from UCLA, spends time in the Almaden lab looking at polymers such as these, and investigates through molecular modeling, the mechanisms of their formation and degradation at the angstrom scale – about 100 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair.

He recently provided a computational model accurately predicting that these materials could be decomposed in water (or acid for the strongest materials) back to their starting form. The resulting polymer was the first ever fully recyclable plastic, loaded with so many strongly faceted bonds, that in its developed phase is stronger than bone.
