Types of Polymerization Reactions

Please sign up for the course before starting the lesson.

Polymerization reactions are of two types: addition or chain-growth polymerization and condensation or step-growth polymerization. Addition or chain-growth polymerization In this type, the monomers are generally unsaturated (alkenes and alkynes) organic compounds. The molecules of the same or different monomers combine to form a single polymer. The chain length is eventually increased through the formation […]
