Condensation Polymers

This program looks at polymers formed by condensation reactions (as distinct from addition reactions). The idea that the properties of a polymer can only be understood by examining the intermolecular bonding within the material is a key feature of the program. Using animation, patterns of bonding are illustrated in both thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers.
