  • Polymer is a long chain molcules made up of small chain monomers

If the monomer molcules are all the same:

- - - - A + A + A + A - - - -  =  - - - - A - A - A - A - - - -

eg. poly(ethene), poly(chloroethene) and PVC

If the monomer molecules are different:

- - - - A + B + A + B - - - -  =  - - - - A - B - A - B - - - -

eg. polyamines (nylons) and polyesters
