Nylon synthesis. Nylon strand being drawn out of a mass of nylon in a laboratory beaker. The nylon is contained in the organic layer, below the upper, 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.
