Polymer Chemistry: Classification of Polymers – Homo polymer & Co polymer – for Class 12th 01/15

A polymer is simply a large molecule (i.e. macromolecule) built up by repetitive binding together of many smaller units called
monomers. Some of the natural polymers are polysaccharides (from glucose units), proteins (from amino acids) and nucleic acids (fromnucleotide units)

Homopolymer and Copolymer Synthetic polymers derived from a single repeating monomer are known as homopolymers while those derived from two or more types of repeating monomer units is known as copolymer.

Average Molecular Mass of Polymer A polymer sample contains chains of varying lengths and thus its molecular mass is expressed as an average as defined in the following .
