ROBERT L. ALLDREDGE, CHEMICAL ENGINEER, INVENTOR, ENTREPRENEUR
One approach to understanding innovation is to know more about innovators, and the biography of Robert L. Alldredge, P.E. (1922‐2008) is considered for this reason. He was the founder of three successful businesses and held about 60 US and foreign patents. One patent of particular interest was Octolig®, a chelating agent covalently attached to a high surface silica gel. Octolig® was the result of a collaboration between an American entrepreneur (Robert Alldredge) and an Australian professor (Leonard Francis Lindoy). It was designed to remove nuisance transition metal ions from water solutions effectively and economically.
