Sometimes materials emerge from development work not specifically sought for in the original task. Yet they are the logical result of established chemical reactions. Their prop- erties, of course, are known, but their ultimate usefulness to in- dustry has not been completely charted. There are probably as many as 7,000 of these chemicals and chemical compoundsthat have emerged from Dow laboratory developments. They are neither accidents nor by-products, but co-products. They align them- selves readily into scientific groups-for example, phenolic derivatives. From time to time these are referred to technicians in various manufacturing fields who may find among them just the needed chemical ingredient to put the finishing touch to their own work in progress. To borrow a banking analogy, these chemicals are industry'l "special account" with Dow on which it can draw so that con- structive developments may proceed to their succemul con- clusion.
