Wesley Hyatt devised a method of making billiard balls with collodion or
The process began with nitrocellulose which he ground
into a fine pulp and combined with camphor, formed in a mold and placed under
pressure and heat.
The pressure was applied for an extended period of
time to create a dense, durable billiard ball.
He names the first
synthetic plastic "Celluloid".
Propylene or methyl ethylene, is an
unsaturated organic compound having the chemical formula
It has one double bond, and is the second
simplest member of the alkene class of hydrocarbons.
Propylene glycol or methyl ethyl glycol
(C3H8O2) is a clear, colorless, slightly
syrupy synthetic liquid at room temperature used by the chemical, food, and
as an antifreeze;
to absorb extra
as a solvent for food colors and flavors;
as a solvent in
the paint and plastics industries;
to maintain moisture in medicines,
cosmetics, food products.
Propylene glycol is used in various edible
items such as coffee-based drinks, liquid sweeteners, ice cream, whipped dairy
products and soda.
Propylene glycol is metabolized in the human body
into pyruvic acid, acetic acid, lactic acid, and
Alcoholic beverages in the US may contain up to 5
percent propylene glycol.
Certain formulations of artificial tears,
Systane, use proplyene glycol.
(C2H4)n the most common plastic, consists of a
long chain of carbon atoms with two hydrogen atoms attached to each carbon
Uses incluse cosmetics, grocery bags, shampoo bottles, children's
toys, and bullet proof vests.
(C3H6)n is a thermoplastic addition
polymer made from the combination of
As polypropylene, compatible with most
existing processing techniques,
has many commercial uses, including packaging, automotive products, housewares,
medicine, tubing, and food.
Polypropylene has better transparency than
Polypropylene has a lower specific weight, so that
lighter products are obtained in its applications.
(C2H3Cl)n, sythesized from
vinyl chloride, is the world's
third-most widely produced polymer, after
polyethylene and polypropylene.
Polyvinyl chloride, the only
plastic made with chlorine, is 57%
chloride requires toxic additives, including heavy metals such as
endocrine-disrupting phthalates, and
flame retardants, in order to be made into
stable and usable consumer products.
These additives are released
during both the use and disposal of PVC.
One byproduct during
decomposition is dioxin.
Nylon monomers are manufactured by a variety of
routes, starting in most cases from crude oil.

Heat caprolactam to about 500° Farenheit in an
inert atmosphere of nitrogen for 4-5 hours, the
ring breaks and caprolactam undergoes
The molten mass is passed through spinnerets to form fibres of nylon
In water, caprolactam [(CH2)5C(O)NH] hydrolyzes
to aminocaproic acid, which is used medicinally.
Melamine, C3H6N6, contains 67%
nitrogen by mass, and its derivatives have fire retardant properties due to its
release of nitrogen gas when burned.
Kjeldahl and Dumas estimate protein
levels by measuring nitrogen content, so they can be misled by adding
nitrogen-rich compounds such as

Butylene, 2-methylpropene, is a series of alkenes with the
general formula C4H8.
Butene is therefore obtained
by catalytic cracking of long-chain hydrocarbons left during refining of crude
Cracking produces a mixture of products, and the butene is
extracted from this by fractional distillation.
Butene reacts with

manufacture of the gasoline oxygenate methyl tert-butyl ether
Butylene glycol, C4H10O2,
is a solvent and viscosity conditioning agent.
Butylene glycol is
commonly used as a solvent for food flavouring agents and in the manufacturing

α-hydroxy acids are a group of organic carboxylic compounds
most commonly used in cosmetic applications.
α-hydroxy acids may
be derived from food products on the microscale:
glycolic acid (from sugar

Glycolic acid is a colorless, odorless, highly soluble
hygroscopic crystalline solid.
Glycolic acid uses the hydroxyl and
carboxylic acid groups to form five member ring complexes (chelates) with
This complexing ability is useful in dissolution of
hard-water scale and prevention of deposition, especially in cleaning
Glycolic acid readily forms salts with active metals,
metal oxides and bases.
Glycolic acid is used in the textile industry as
a dyeing and tanning agent, in food processing as a flavoring agent and as a
Glycolic acid is often included into emulsion polymers,
solvents and additives for ink and paint in order to improve flow properties
and impart gloss.
Although Glycolic acid occurs naturally as a trace
component in sugarcane, beets, grapes and fruits,
DuPont synthesizes the

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality
and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel
through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the
human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate
religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious
ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery
religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes,
has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every
individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of a
perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of
the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
