Item  5.  Other  Events

On November 24, 2001, Borden, Inc., the Registrant, merged with its wholly owned
subsidiary,  Borden Chemical, Inc. In conjunction with the merger, Borden, Inc.,
the  surviving  corporation,  changed  its  name  to  Borden  Chemical,  Inc.
Consequently,  all future filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission by
the  Registrant  will  be  under  the  name  of  Borden  Chemical,  Inc.

The name change reflects the fact that the only operating segment of the Company
and  Combined  Companies,  after  the  sale  of  the Company's Consumer Adhesive
business  and  the  Combined  Companies'  Foods business in the third quarter of
2001,  is  the  Chemical  business.


Pursuant  to  the  requirements  of  the  Securities  Exchange  Act of 1934, the
Registrant  has  duly  caused  this  report  to  be  signed on its behalf by the
undersigned  thereunto  duly  authorized.
