Abstract : The submitted report on the development of the rubber industry in the USSR since 1950 is general in design due to the scope of the topic. It was compiled to a great extent on the basis of individual papers published in nonspecialized periodicals and is necessarily incomplete. More information could be obtained from the transactions (trudy) of individual specialized institutes, and the unfortunate fact that these transactions are not available cannot be sufficiently emphasized. The review of the development of studies on rubber can as yet not fully reflect the present state of rubber research in the USSR because its scope and rate have considerably increased in 1959 and the results of many studies have not yet been published. Academician V. A. Kargin states, for instance, that the scope of studies in the USSR on high molecular compounds has increased by 2.5 to 3 times in 1959. The most salient feature of the open literature data is the scarcity of studies on special purpose rubbers. It must be stressed, however, that many studies on these rubbers are not available; for instance, those conducted at the VNIISK by N. P. Apukhtina and other scientists mentioned by Soviet authors. The transactions of the VNIISK could provide very valuable information on the work of this Institute. It is possible that some new materials for special purposes are being already produced on a semi-industrial scale by the Experimental Plant of the VNIISK or by other special plants. (Author)
