When was nylon invented and do the letters NY and LON stand for New York and London?
No it doesn't mean NY and LOndon. It was a marketing term invented by a team at DuPont. They went through several names, including Duparooh (DuPont Pulls a Rabbit Out of a Hat) Norun (refering to its use as hosiery), nillon, nilon (confusing pronunciation) and finally nylon. For a great article on the history of nylon, see: Bruns, Roger. (1988, Dec.). Of miracles and molecules: The story of nylon. American History Illustrated, 23 (8), 24-29, 48. By Dupont, 1935: inventors.about.com Probably does mean NewYork and London Nylon was invented by Wallace Carothers in 1935. There was a great demand for it as it was used for parachutes and tires. It is still used today in toothbrushes, stockings, fishing products, etc. A "nylon commuter" is someone who commutes between New York and London. A number of "Brand Names " were developed by the inventing company, DUPONT Chemicals, such as NYLON, BANLON, ORLON and RAYON. All were types of woven textiles. Jim Bunting. Toronto. Actually, Jim, rayon was invented around 1885 and it is not a synthetic fiber as were the ones invented by DuPont. Instead, the original rayon was a regenerated cellulose (made from cotton linters and wood pulp). Yes it does stand for New York and London as it was created by scientists from the locations. No it doesn't--see notes above. In the UK we have a programme on the telly, hosted by Stephen Fry, called QI (Quite Interesting) & it assured me when I saw it recently that Nylon is nothing to do with New York & London ! Correct! See notes above. Final answer, Nylon was not named after New York and London.

Wallace Carrothers, an absolutely brilliant organic chemist who worked for DuPont, and battled severe depression all his life. Carrothers wanted to give something to mankind that would be truly useful, but was not convinced any of his work had been any good at all. He ultimately committed suicide. T…hree weeks after taking his own life, he was awarded the patent for nylon - one of the most useful of all synthetic plastic-type compounds. (MORE)

Virtually all national and international airlines flights are regularly scheduled from Kennedy Airport. Normally departing in the evening and arriving during the morning ... mostly at Heathrow but some go to Gatwick which is closer, better train and much easier to "tolerate." Cabs from heathrow are …very expensive but other transportation is available. These are "all nighters" and the speed toward the rising sun makes for a very short darkness. Pity the pilots .. they face the sun almost the whole way ... and also returning during the "all day" arrive shrtly afte you depart, timewise. (MORE)

No it does not. An employee of DuPont once said that the "nyl" was arbitrary and the "on" suffix was taken from other fabrics such as cotton. A later publication by DuPont said that the name for the material was originally intended to be "No-run" but that claim could not be backed-up in practice and… the name was changed to something similar-sounding.

London to New York is usually routed directly over the north pole. The earth's curvature means this is the most efficient route. Because of the low temperature planes on this route are often equipped with extra furnaces in the baggage area, which is one of the reasons you are not allowed extra bagga…ge on this flight. (MORE)
