Chemistry chapters like Polymers might be little confusing to remember in one go, and hence revision is the best way to keep yourself through with the topics. Here we have discussed revision notes for chapter 15 – Polymers.
Classification of polymers based on source:
- Natural polymers – Some examples are cellulose, rubber
- Semi-synthetic polymers – Cellulose derivatives such as cellulose nitrate and cellulose acetate etc.
- Synthetic polymers – Some examples are polythene, Buna – S, etc.
Classification of polymers based on the structure:
- Linear polymers
- Branched-chain polymers
- Network polymers or Crosslinked
Classification of polymers based on the mode of polymerization:
- Addition polymers
- Condensation polymers
Based on the molecular forces polymers are classified into:
- Thermoplastic polymers
- Thermosetting polymers
