Another suggestion:

wayne's site looks very interesting, but if you want something less
thorough, try http://www.sdplastics.com/plastics.html

Rod,

You might try these two websites combined. The first one is a very
understandable website about oil refining and gets you to the point of
producing natural gas which is a feedstock for plastics. The second one is
about polymerization, is a little more academic but still a good website
showing how you chain the molecules together to form plastic. I used the
second one to educate myself on the subject of plastics a few years ago.

I hope they help.

For months now I have been looking for a fairly detailed layman's
explanation of how oil and gas become plastics.
Can anyone make a recommendation

Things seem a bit quiet on the list lately.
Hope all are in good spirits

Thanks
Rod
