Polymer technology is now an energetic and thriving group of scientists, engineers and technologists, yet there has been a time, now not goodbye in the past, whilst there has been no such neighborhood. The prehistory of polymer technology is helping to supply key insights into present concerns and old difficulties. the tale could be divided into an historical interval ( from Greek instances to the production of the molecular consensus), a nascent interval (from Dalton to Kekule to van't Hoff) and a interval of paradigm formation and controversy (from Staudinger to Mark to Carothers). The prehistory concludes with an account of the epochal 1935 dialogue of the Faraday Society on "Polymerization". After this assembly an lively group engaged in attempting to resolve the significant difficulties outlined by means of the discussions.
