  For the First Time, Plastics Shown to Enter Human Organs. A study of human tissue collected over many years for other medical studies shows that lung, liver, spleen and kidney samples studied contain both micro- and nano-plastics. Bisphenol A (BPA), a commons food container liner, was found in all the samples -every one tested.   Many scientists view nanotechnology as the revolutionary technology of the 21st century. Just as plastics were a pervasive and revolutionary product of the 20th century, nanotechnology products are having widespread use and change our lives in a myriad of ways. This technology has quickly evolved into a global force that is transforming manufacturing, medicine and [ ].

The First Synthetic Plastic. The first synthetic polymer was invented in by John Wesley Hyatt, who was inspired by a New York firm’s offer of $10, for anyone who could provide a substitute for ivory. The growing popularity of billiards had put a strain on the supply of natural ivory, obtained through the slaughter of wild elephants.

The seventh edition of this classic reference work once more provides a comprehensive overview of commercially available plastics materials. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, it enables scientists to understand the commercial implications of their work as well as providing technologists with a theoretical background.

“A splendid history of plastic. The book is authoritative, thorough, interdisciplinary, and intriguing [Meikle] traces the course of plastics from 19th–century celluloid and the fist wholly synthetic bakelite, inthrough the proliferation of compounds (vinyls, acrylics, polystyrene, nylon, etc.) and recent ecological concernsReviews: 5.

The first man-made plastic was created by Alexander Parkes who publicly demonstrated it at the Great International Exhibition in London. The material, called Parkesine, was an organic material derived from cellulose that, once heated, could be molded and retained its shape when cooled.

The first plastic based on a synthetic polymer was made from phenol and formaldehyde, with the first viable and cheap synthesis methods invented inby Leo Hendrik Baekeland, a Belgian-born American living in New York state.

Baekeland was looking for an insulating shellac to coat wires in electric motors and generators. Stephen Fenichell's book, "Plastic: The Making of A Synthetic Century" (Harper-Collins).
