Edith Marie Flanigen began her career in chemistry in the early 1950s, at a time when few women were working in the field. It was also a very inventive and exciting time at Union Carbide, where Flanigen began work as a research chemist. In 2004 Flanigen won the $100,000 Lemelson-MIT Lifetime Achievement Award for her groundbreaking achievements in zeolite and molecular sieve technology.
