Fabulous Fibers: The Chemistry of Fabrics
National Chemistry Week this year celebrates the theme, “Fabulous Fibers: The Chemistry of Fabrics.” When you start to unravel this theme a bit, you’ll find chemistry worth celebrating. From the layers of plastic fibers in N95 masks; to linen tablecloths made from the flax plant; to hydrophilic cotton and hydrophobic nylon; to smooth, strong silk made from insect cocoons—the history and uses for fabrics is nothing short of fabulous.
Come join our Local Section as we kick off National Chemistry Week a bit early—hosting our annual chemistry demonstration exchange with demos provided by our SMACS chapters.
