Novel Method for the Production of Nylon

University of Illinois researchers have identified a new process for the production of nylon. Nylon is one of the most commonly used polymers, however the common production technology uses high temperatures & pressures and creates undesirable by-products. This novel method is performed at room temperature & pressure and only creates water as a by-product. This is an extremely environmentally friendly method and will allow us to continue to enjoy the benefits of stockings, fabrics, ropes and other items we use daily.
