Dr. Stewart P. Lewis is a world leading expert in the area of sustainable cationic polymerization. He is the only person to invent multiple methods to effect such reactions under aqueous conditions. Lewis’ innovations include heterogeneous initiator systems and those that operate in a truly catalytic manner which have no counterpart to date. His chemistries offer significant benefits from both cost and environmental standpoints. He also has expertise in the synthesis of novel acids useful for engendering such transformations. Some of these researches have been featured prominently in journals such as Journal of Polymer Science.
