Dr. Dean R. Rexford of the DuPont Organics Chemicals Department, Wilmington, Delaware, USA, credited with leading the development of Viton®, the world's fluoroelastomer.

...
The story began in April 1954, when Dr. Dean R. Rexford of the DuPont Organics Chemicals Department in Wilmington, Delaware, USA, was experimenting with a new elastomer with high temperature and chemical resistance. Unfortunately, there was one major barrier. Commercial scale polymerization of the materials used to make this product was considered a significant potential safety risk. It was up to Dr. Rexford, chemist and inventor, to tackle this issue. Following a controlled reaction involving hexafluoropropene, vinylidene fluoride and polymerization initiators, an elastic 60/40 HFP/VF2 copolymer was obtained.

But the story really began in April 1954, when Dr. Dean R. Rexford of the DuPont Organics Chemicals Department in Wilmington, Delaware, USA, was experimenting with a new elastomer with high temperature and chemical resistance. Unfortunately, there was one major barrier. Polymerization of the materials used to make this product was banned for safety reasons. It was up to Dr. Rexford, chemist and inventor, to tame this potential monster. Following a controlled reaction involving hexafluoropropene, vinylidene fluoride and polymerization initiators, an elastic 60/40 HFP/VF2 copolymer was obtained.
