... configuration and thermoplastic in its trans configuration. The utility of natural rubber was greatly increased by the discovery of vulcanization (the chemical process that transforms rubber into a thermoset material) in 1839 ( Ref 3 ). Synthetic rubbers were developed largely in response to a reduction in...
