Preparation of Nylon: Synthetic Fiber Demonstration—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

Nylon, the world’s first synthetic polymer fiber, was exhibited in 1939 at the “World of Tomorrow” World’s Fair in New York City as being “as strong as steel, as fine as a spider’s web, yet more elastic than any of the common natural fibers!” In the Preparation of Nylon: Synthetic Fiber Demonstration—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, explore what nylon is and how it can be prepared.
