    In diesem Beitrag wird aufgezeigt, mit welchen Strategien die ostdeutsche Chemieindustrie den Transformationsprozeß von der Planwirtschaft mit volkseigenen Betrieben zur Marktwirtschaft mit Privatunternehmen bewältigt hat. Betrachtet werden dafür die Standorte der ehemaligen Kombinate Bitterfeld-Wolfen, Buna und Leuna, an denen vor der Transformation 50 Prozent des Chemie- und 10 Prozent des gesamten Industrieproduktionswertes der ehemaligen DDR geschaffen wurden. Die Ausgangslage der Betriebe an diesen Standorten wurde 1989/1990 als so verheerend eingestuft, daß eine Weiterführung der Erzeugung chemischer Produkte sehr fraglich war. -- This paper analyzes the strategies of the eastern German chemical industry to make the transition from planned to market economy. For this purpose, the sites at Bitterfeld- Wolfen, Buna and Leuna (called the .chemical triangle.) are researched. Before the transformation, 50 percent of the chemical and 10 percent of the whole industrial production value of the former GDR was created in the .chemical triangle.. The plants. starting situation for the sites mentioned above were assessed disastrous in 1989 - 1990. Thus, the survival of chemicals production on these sites was insecure.
