Addition Polymerisation

  • Addition Polymerisation
    • Example
    • How they are formed
      • The monomers that make up addition polymers have a double covalent bond
      • Lots of unsaturated monomer molecules (alkenes) can open up their double bonds and can join together to form polymer chains. This is called addition polymerisation
      • When the monomers react in addition polymerisation  reactions, the only product is the polymer. so an addition polymer contains the exact same type and number of atoms as the monomers that are formed
