Stephanie Kwolek is the American chemist who invented Kevlar. While working for DuPont, she researched a lightweight yet strong fiber to be used in tires. Instead, she created a fiber that was stronger than nylon and ounce for ounce five times stronger than steel.  A new field of polymer chemistry quickly arose.

She invented Kevlar Polish-American chemist Stephanie Kwolek (July 1923 - June 2014
