Caption: Nylon synthesis experiment. Nylon strand being drawn out of a mass of nylon in a beaker. This nylon synthesis experiment is also known as the 'nylon rope trick'. The nylon has formed at the interface between an organic layer and an aqueous (water) layer. Nylon is a synthetic fibre that is formed by the condensation polymerization of amine-containing molecules and carboxylic acid-containing molecules to form long chains called polymers. Nylon is used to make fabrics, and also ropes and some medical prosthetics.
