DESCRIPTION

Nylon synthesis, or the "Nylon Rope Trick," is a classic demonstration of polymer chemistry. Nylon is a synthetic compound of high molecular weight that consists of up to millions of repeated chemical units that are linked together. This polymer is referred to as Nylon 6-10. You will use this nylon synthesis kit to make nylon 6-10 by mixing two solutions. The nylon polymer can be easily pulled into a thick "ropey" form, thus the name "Nylon Rope Trick."

Safety gear, specifically gloves, goggles, and apron, are recommended. You provide 10mL graduated cylinder, beaker and glass stirring rod.

WarningWARNING: This product can expose you to n-Hexane, which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
