Nylon, a particular family of synthetic polyamides, is an extraordinarily versatile material. Synthesized for the first time by Wallace Hume Carothers in a laboratory of DuPont in 1935 starting from adipic acid and hexamethylene diamine, the Nylon 6.6 was patented in 1937 and first marketed in 1938.
