Caption: Making Nylon in a laboratory setting by reacting molecules with an acid (COOH) group on each end with molecules containing amine (NH2) groups on each end. The two acid groups and the two amines are formed into monomers of intermediate molecular weight, which are then reacted to form long polymer chains.
