In 1938, an employee Roy Plunkett working at DuPont discovered Teflon. It went into commercial production in 1946.
It has a high molecular weight and a molecular formula of (C2F4)n where “n” indicates that it is a polymer formed of a long chain of molecules bonded together with a carbon atom.
Teflon does not get wet by water and most other liquids. It offers very little friction. It is not reactive and can be used safely for making non-stick cooking utensils.Learn more about States of Matter
