Polymer Synthesis

The process by which monomers are covalently bonded to form a polymer chain or network is known as polymer synthesis or polymerization. The polymers are synthesized differently to influence the physical properties like density, crystallinity, melting point and strength. When a polymer is synthesized, water is released as a by product which is known as “Dehydration synthesis” meaning combined while losing water. Even the human DNA is a result of polymerisation of its monomer nucleotides. Polymers are produced by these two chemical reaction types.

  • Condensation polymerization
  • Chain growth polymerization

The former synthesis process in which monomers react and give a repeat unit and a smaller molecule water, whereas the latter forms a highly reactive free radical and a molecule with an unpaired electron. For every molecule, their synthesis has to be understood to analyse, make changes and improve them accordingly
