5 Camphor flaker at the camphor plant at Deepwater Point, New Jersey 1941 E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company (originator), Rittase, William M., 1894-1968 (photographer) This photograph shows a camphor flaker at the camphor plant of E.I. du Pont Nemours & Company at Deepwater Point NJ. At this plant camphor is manufactured for medical as well as industrial use. This latter is known as technical camphor. Technical camphor in flaked form is run from this machine directly into containers for shipment. Camphor was for centuries a natural monopoly. Chinese, visiting the Island of Formosa in 1421, found trees from the chips of which the natives distilled a white...

This photograph shows a camphor flaker at the camphor plant of E.I. du Pont Nemours & Company at Deepwater Point NJ. At this plant camphor is manufactured for medical as well as industrial use. This latter is known as technical camphor. Technical camphor in flaked form is run from this machine directly into containers for shipment. Camphor was for centuries a natural monopoly. Chinese, visiting the Island of Formosa in 1421, found trees from the chips of which the natives distilled a white crystalline material of pleasing door. This material-camphor- was soon in demand throughout the then civilized world, chiefly as a medicine. The Chinese annexed Formosa and built up a monopoly on camphor which they maintained until 1895, when they lost the island to Japan. The growth of plastics manufacture resulted in the development of camphor as an important industrial commodity. This fact was thoroughly appreciated by the Japanese who controlled the world market and with it the price. Chemical research was directed to a method for the synthesis of this vital material. Within recent years, DuPont chemists have devised a successful process by which turpentine from southern pines is converted into camphor suitable for medical as well as industrial use.

Sulfuric acid is a basic chemical used by industry on a large scale. The fertilizer, petroleum, textile, iron and steel, paint and pigment, chemical, explosives and other industries use millions of tons of it every year. The DuPont Company has been making sulfuric acid for many years. This photograph shows an operator cleaning scale from a zinc roaster during an early stage in the sulfuric acid manufacturing process at the East Chicago, IN works of DuPont's Grasselli Chemicals Department. In this process, finely ground zinc sulfide ore is blown into the roaster, where it is burned with air to produce sulfur dioxide and zinc oxide. The zinc oxide may be reduced to zinc metal and the sulfur dioxide may be converted into sulfuric acid by either contact or chamber process. Sulfuric acid originally was produced by the chamber process at the East Chicago Works but now is made by the more modern and efficient contact process.

22 Comparison of Teflon and plastic 1945 E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company (originator) From a boiling bath of hot sulfuric acid, a laboratory technician lifts two rods of plastic. One has charred and deteriorated. The other-a rod of DuPont's new Teflon tetrafluoroethylene resin-is not affected at all by the highly corrosive hot acid. Teflon resists the most corrosive acids and solvents to a degree unequaled by any other plastic. It is not attacked even by aqua regia which dissolves gold and platinum.
