National Inventors Month: The inventors of nylon plastic

To celebrate National Inventors Month, we thought we’d take a look at the inventors who shaped the future with Nylon plastics. Wallace Carothers worked at DuPont, a company who was known for producing gunpowder, cellulose-based paints, and synthetic ammonia and other chemicals. His teams' experiments with cellulose-based fibres led to them producing fiber rayon, an…
