“I am inclined to think that the development of polymerization is perhaps the biggest thing chemistry has done, where it has had the biggest impact on everyday life” (Lord Todd, President of the Royal Society, 1957 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry) “The colloid chemistry of proteins provides then an approach to the obscure region which scientists contemplate today only with a silent longing for the promised land - the physical chemistry of living matter.” (W. Pauli, Kolloid Z. 1908, 3,2) 5 5 Monday, September 20, 2010

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
