The field of polymer reaction engineering started growing at increasing rates possibly in the late 1950s or early 1960s, even though work was reported as early as in the 1930s. In its nascent stages, it provided a challenging and 'modern' area of research, evolving from the modeling of complex polymerization systems, to experimentation for filling the gaps in our knowledge, to optimization and now encompassing domains of molecular simulations and computational fluid dynamics. It has now matured into a 'conventional' area of research. This article reviews our journey over about four decades.
