От пана Вотруба

  1898

  26 марта в Томск прибыл первый курьерский поезд прямого сообщения из Москвы, ознаменовавший начало постоянной эксплуатации ж/д ветки Тайга–Томск. Поезду устроили торжественную встречу, на вокзале отслужен молебен, а в гостинице «Европейская» состоялся парадный обед.

April 6, 1938 that a scientist at DuPont, Dr. Roy Plunkett, made the first batch.

Plunkett was playing around with different gases in his lab. His goal was to come up with a better coolant gas.

He left one batch of this gas overnight in a container. When he arrived the next day, the gas was no longer.

Instead, the container was filled with a waxy solid which he found to be very slippery and impervious to all sorts of corrosive chemicals that usually chew things apart.

This stuff was tetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a solid version of those dreaded fluorocarbons (freon).

As you can tell, tetrafluoroethylene is not a very catchy name.

Good old Doc Plunkett came up with an abbreviated name for the stuff – Teflon.
