This article offers information on polyvinylidene dinitrile fibers. A diagram illustrating how fibers were spun from polymers or copolymers of vinylidene dinitrile is presented. In 1947, vinylidene dinitrile was synthesized at the research laboratories of B. F. Goodrich Co. This type of synthetic fiber was produced under the trade name of Darlan. A definition for nytril was provided by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. A combination of vinylidene dinitrile and vinyl acetate is polymerized through heating in benzene in the presence of a peroxide catalyst.
