Monomers & Polymers
- Monomers are individual molecules that make up a polymer.
- Polymers are long chains that are composed of many individual monomers that have been bonded together in a repeating pattern.
- Condensation Reactions occurs when two molecules combine to form a more complex molecule with the removal of water.
- Hydrolysis Reactions occurs when larger molecules are broken down into smaller molecules with the addition of water.
