This paper is designed to make the
students recognized that polymers are materials with characteristic mechanical
and physical properties which are controlled by the structure and the methods of
synthesis. The main topics are polymer synthesis, the reaction of monomers to
form polymers, copolymers or terpolymers either by chain-growth, step-growth (polycondensation),
ring-opening, and olefin metathesis or group-transfer polymerizations.
