We Put “Delight” Under a Microscope

From rock concerts to amusement parks, chemistry makes modern fun possible. Our series The Chemistry of Delight shows how.

Work done in the laboratory leads to play. Because of fluoropolymers, audio engineers can deliver near-perfect sound to concertgoers. Advanced polymers enable the creation of modern outerwear and sports equipment. And thanks to high-performance lubricants, vacationers can reach far-flung, exotic locales.

In short, chemistry enables us to have fun. And delivering today’s optimal leisure experience means leveraging today’s advanced chemistry. Our series looks at just how chemists’ work leads to delight everywhere.
