Research Fellow, New Business/New Technologies

Bayer MaterialScience

Dr. Karl Haider received a B.S. degree in Chemistry from Juniata College in 1983 and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Organic Chemistry from Ohio State University in 1986 and 1989, respectively. Following a post-doctoral appointment at Yale University, he joined Bayer’s Polyurethane Research Group in 1991.

Karl is currently a Research Fellow in the New Technologies Group at Bayer MaterialScience in Pittsburgh, PA. In this role he works with universities and small companies to identify and develop emerging materials related technologies that may address the long term needs of Bayer’s Polycarbonates, Polyurethanes, and Coatings Adhesives and Specialties Business Units.

His technical interests include polymer science, nanocomposites for improved mechanical, barrier, surface, or electrical properties, biobased polymers and feedstocks, and materials for energy storage and conversion. Prior to his current position, he worked for 15 years as a researcher in the polyurethanes industry, where he developed technology for elastomers, rigid and flexible foams, adhesives and sealants and for the synthesis of polyurethane raw materials. He has authored over 50 external publications and patents over his career.

Karl serves on Bayer’s Sustainability Council, as well as on several external advisory boards including the Technical Advisory Committee for the Pennsylvania Nanomaterials Commercialization Center and the Technical Screening Committee for the GreenCentre Canada. He serves on the Editorial Board of both the Journal of Cellular Plastics and ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces.
