Commercial manufacturing of styrene did not begin until in the 1930s. The first time it was manufactured was in 1931 after intensive work had been put in by two individuals: Herman Staudinger and Carl Wolff. The fruits of their work led to the development of an important tool that extruded styrene through a heated tube and a cutter. The result was a pellet like polymer that was much easier to use.
