Summary:Demonstrates addition and condensation polymerization reactions, and indicates how physical properties and molecular structure of polymers may be related. Four polymers are shown, and the differences in their properties are explained using models. Finally, materials are shown being turned into the more familiar plastic consumer goods. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
