Which of the following is a chain growth polymer? A.) Teflon B.) Nylon-6,6 C.) Nylon-6 D.) None

Answer: (a) Teflon


A chain growth polymer is one that is generated when molecules of the same or different monomers combine on a large scale to form a polymer. Teflon is a chain growth polymer because the tetrafluoroethylene (monomer) molecules simply add together to create the polymer. As a result, Option A is the proper response.Teflon is used as a non-stick coating for pans and other cookwares. It is non reactive partly because of the strength of carbon fluorine bonds and so this is often used in containers and pipework for reactive and corrosive chemicals.
