chemistry is concerned with the chemical synthesis and chemical properties of
polymers. Polymer chemistry is a multidisciplinary science that deals with the
chemical synthesis and chemical
properties of polymers which were considered as macromolecules. Polymers are
huge macromolecules composed of repeating structural units. While polymer in
popular usage suggests plastic, the term actually refers to a large class of
natural and synthetic materials.
Due to the extraordinary range of properties accessible, Polymer Sciences have come to play an
essential and ubiquitous role in everyday life - from plastics and elastomers on
the one hand to natural
biopolymers such as DNA and proteins on the other hand. The study of
polymer sciences begins with understanding the methods in which
these materials are synthesized. Polymer synthesis is a complex
procedure and can take place in a variety of ways.
