How is terylene prepared?​

Terylene is prepared by the condensation polymerization of ethylene glycol and Terephthalic acid with removal of water. A mixture of zinc acetate and antimony trioxide is used as a catalyst. The temperature maintained for this process is 425 K to 475 K. Polymerization is a process through which a large number of monomer molecules react together to form a polymer.
