How did we even start producing plastics? It all began in 1846 when a chemistry professor by the name of Christian Schönbein spilled a container of nitric and sulfuric acids. After mopping up the substances with a spare cloth apron, he hung it up by the stove to dry. To his surprise, the whole thing went up in flames. After doing some more research on nitrocellulose, Schönbein discovered that it could be molded to form a cool new material: plastic.
It’s no secret that plastics are everywhere these days. Take a look around your house or workplace. You’re bound to find at least a couple items within your sight that are made of this popular material.
