Examples from the Web for isoprene
Isoprene, from which Dr. Tilden produced India rubber, is comparatively a new product, as derived from oil of turpentine.
This is the first instance on record of the spontaneous change of isoprene into India rubber.
The difficulty lay rather in the cost of the raw material, isoprene.
Specimens of isoprene were made from several vegetable oils in the course of Dr. Tilden's work on those compounds.
From this gas isoprene can be made and the isoprene converted into rubber by sodium, or acid or alkali or simple heating.
