Dr. Ewen also developed an oxygen permeable bag, which enables salads to remain crisp without refrigeration, so they can be stored on a shelf for longer periods of time. With over 49 patents and 29 refereed publications, Dr. Ewen has revitalised the plastics industry globally making it the lucrative industry it is today. His success stems from "a love for chemistry, a love for doing research and all credit to the metallocenes." A young John Ew en Dr. Ewen was born in Kingston Jamaica in 1945. Ewen developed his passion for chemistry when he went to the University of the West Indies, Mona. Dr. Ewen retired as President of Catalyst Research Corporation but still works as a consultant. His current research is on a new group of catalysts known as heterocines. He enjoys playing golf, fishing and reading. His love for reading has helped to motivate him to achieve great things. He says that the success of his career as a catalyst chemist is due to "hard work, long hours and fighting many battles. He tells young persons that "research is the most exciting and interesting way to make a living, and one must focus on the needs of society especially in the Caribbean to make an impact. He adds "research is highly rewarding and one can have a very satisfying life if you enjoy what you do." Interview with Dr. John Ewen. Ewen, J. A (1997) "New Chemical Tools to Create Plastics.

AWARDEE: Dr. John Ewen, a 2001 recipient of the United States' National Medal of Technology.John A. EwenPresidentCatalyst Research CorporationBrief Biography: John A. Ewen, a catalyst chemist and inventor, has been awarded the 2001 National Medal of Technology for his discovery of novel polymerization catalysts and processes for converting inexpensive ethylene and propylene into new plastics of great utility in modern society.The plastics find broad applications in our daily lives, ranging from furniture, housing and automobile construction, fibers for clothing and containers, water-resistant coatings for food and medicines, moisture-retaining barriers for agriculture fields and harvested produce.Working with a class of organometallic polymerization catalysts known as metallocenes Ewen discovered that rational changes to the molecular structures of these tiny polymerization machines had profound effects on controlling the structures and physical properties of the gigantic macromolecules produced by them. Catalysts can now be confidently designed to yield polymers having a wide array of desirable properties for several specific applications.Ewen's publications and patents since 1984 have been largely instrumental in heralding and bringing to fruition this profound technological change in the plastics industry.As a result of Dr. Ewen's discoveries in metallocene catalysis, plastics with new properties and new materials have given American plastics producers the leading competitive edge on a global level.From a technology standpoint, the global marketing of polyolefin production facilities has been drastically changed.Polyolefin customers and producers alike now demand the capability of metallocene-derived polymers.The new materials resulting from the use of metallocenes are benefiting our society in ways that have only begun to be realized.John Ewen's on-going work continues to expand the understanding and scope of application of these extraordinary metallocene catalysts.Dr. Ewen was born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1945.
