Nylon-6,6, also known as Nylon 66, is basically a type of polyamide or nylon. Nylon-6,6 is composed of two monomers, each containing six carbon atoms, hexamethylenediamine, and adipic acid, which give nylon-6,6 its name. Nylon-6,6 is synthesised by polycondensation of hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid. Equivalent amounts of hexamethylenediamine, as well as adipic acid, are combined with water in a reactor.
