There are always two sides to science, the analytical and the synthetical. The analytical side strives to answer the questions How?, What?, and Why?, and it does so by taking apart the things or the processes under study so that we may learn about composition, structure, and interaction. The synthetical side starts with known substances and known reactions, and strives to create from them something new and useful. Previous chapters in this book have dealt with analytical investigations devoted to research, or to trouble-shooting in the plant, or to quality control of industrial products. In the present chapter, we shall turn to the other side and consider some constructive and creative aspects of resinography. The examples will be based on lessons learned earlier in structure and morphology, and will serve to illustrate the creative use that may be made of information gained in routine study.
