Even before the advent of modern polymer science, a variety of polymers were bonded together by chemical processes. When these early industrialists were experimenting with the drying of paint, the curing of inks, the vulcanization of rubber, and the tanning of leather, among others, they had not realized the similarities among the different processes.
