DuPont section[edit]

The DuPont section needs to be formatted for easier reading. There is an invention called "paragraph break" that might help. (But you'd better check whether is hasn't been patented by Monsanto 8-). All the best, --Jorge Stolfi (talk) 03:24, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Point well taken. The summary of the "DuPont" era work expanded a bit beyond the few sentences originally envisioned. The paragraph break is likely a 3M innovation that immediately preceded "Post-its" but it's in the Public Domain now - hence it's probably allowed for DuPont work ;-) In any event, the description is chronological so the partitioning is easy. Thanks for the reminder. Pnictogen (talk) 17:29, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Length[edit]

This article is too long and only caters to a very niche audience. I suggest shortening/combining some sections and deleting completely unnecessary sections (i.e. Early Life). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.221.164.46 (talk) 03:21, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

The article has a length and detail commensurate with other biographies in the American chemists, Inorganic Chemists, and Organic chemists categories. Wiki articles should provide the non-expert and expert reader alike with a summary and description that is sufficiently detailed and clearly written to be useful to both groups.
