Monomer
Individual molecules used to make polymers. Always an alkene
1 of 6
Polymer
A chain of thousands of monomers - they are extremely large
2 of 6
Finding the name of a monomer
Add poly- to the front of the monomer name
3 of 6
Carbon bonds in monomer vs polymer
In a monomer there a double carbon bond whilst in the polymer there are single carbon-carbon bonds
4 of 6
Bonding in polymers
Strong single covalent bonds between carbon molecules
5 of 6
Polymers at room temperature
They are solids as there are strong inter-molecular forces of attraction between polymer molecules so they need lots of energy to break them
