A FEW FACTS FROM THE HISTORY OF THE FACULTY
The need to expand industrial production of polymers on the basis of advanced technologies, training of qualified engineers-technologists on the synthesis and processing of polymers, the development of scientific schools on chemistry and technology of macromolecular compounds of the Soviet Union a new faculty – Faculty of High Molecular Compounds – was founded in 1964 at Dnipropetrovsk Chemical-Technological Institute named after. F.E. Dzerzhinsky. The first dean of the Faculty was Associate Professor O.S. Formentko (1964-1965). At various times, the Faculty was headed by V.M. Nabyvach (1965-1972), I.M.
