Transcript of Polymer chemistry

Polymer chemistry Addition polymerisation is used in the manufacture of a variety of polymers, starting from different alkene monomers. Polymers can be put various uses due to their differeing physical properties A repeat unit: a specific arrangement of atoms that occurs in the structure over and over again. Repeat unites are included in brackets, outside of which is the symbol n. Using a repeat unit is easier than drawing out a whole polymer which can be chains of monomers. An example of a monomer to a repeat unit Common polymers you will need to know: Teflon Roy Plunkett found it when cleaning out a cylinder of gas It is now used on non- stick surfaces as it is heat resistant
