 DU PONT SCIENTIST WEBSTER RECEIVES ACS AWARDS
 WILMINGTON, Del., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Du Pont scientist Owen W.


Webster, inventor of group transfer polymerization, today was named the winner of the American Chemical Society's Applied Polymer Science Award.
 Webster, a prolific researcher within Du Pont Central Research and Development for 37 years, was described as "a scientist of international standing among both organic and polymer chemists."
 Webster joined Du Pont research in 1955 after receiving a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Penn State University.
 In 1983 Du Pont announced his discovery of group transfer polymerization (GTP), a method for synthesis of acrylic polymers now used worldwide by polymer scientists and expected to continue to have important scientific and industrial applications.
 The chemical society also noted Webster's contributions in other areas including cyanocarbon chemistry and heterocyclic chemistry.
 A holder of 30 U.S. patents, Webster also has published 45 scientific papers and reviews and has lectured frequently at universities and scientific meetings. He is a past chairman of the Delaware Section of the American Chemical Society and received the ACS Delaware Section Award in 1987.
