Nylon is a synthetic polymer, a plastic, invented on February 28, 1935 by Wallace Carothers at DuPont of Wilmington, Delaware, USA.
Nylon is made of repeating units with amide linkages between them: hence it is frequently referred to as a polyamide.
Most types of nylon are condensation polymers, formed by reacting almost exactly equal parts of a diamine and a dicarboxylic acid, so that peptide bonds form on each end of a given monomer in a process analogous to biological polypeptide formation.

Nylon fibres are now used to make many synthetic fabrics, and solid nylon is used as an engineering material.Chemically, nylon is a condensation polymer made of repeating units with amide linkages between them: hence it is frequently referred to as a polyamide.
In the case of "Nylon 6,6", there are 6 CH units between the reactive dicarboxylic acid and 6 CH units between diamine linkages.
In the case of "Nylon 6", there are 6 CH units between the reactive carboxylic acid and amine linkages (which were originally located on the same monomer, caprolactam).
