Example text

He also explored the reactions between saligenin and phenol itself. This reaction produces substances of the diphenylol methane type. Baekeland was especially interested in the infusible and insoluble resin produced by the method of Story. He did a more careful chemical engineering analysis of the process and showed that during the long “drying” stage, both water and phenol were expelled from the mass. The heterogeneous nature of this procedure produced a product with large stresses and distortions.

In the 1880’s Arthur Michael (1853-1942) continued the study of these reactions and demonstrated the amorphous character of the resinous products. He also showed that the reactions could be catalyzed by base as well as acid (3). Eventually this work resulted in his election to the National Academy of Sciences (1889) and to appointment to Harvard University (1912). Michael is best remembered for his work on enolate ions, a subject central to the formation of Bakelite. By 1890 formaldehyde could be obtained commercially as a 40% aqueous solution.
