Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Paula on Tuesday, February 20, 2007 at 1:59pm.

I have one more question DrBob, I have draw a structure of this polymer CH2=CH-CH-OH
'
CH3
and identify the monomer units.

Would the mononer unit be this:
CH2-CH-CH-O
'
CH3

AND WOULD THIS POLYMERIZATION BE A CONDENSATION TYPE?



Paula--I am not an organic chemist but this doesn't look like a polymer to me. I think of polymers as macromolecules having VERY high molar masses and this look like a small molecule that happens to be an alkene/alcohol. Is this the monomer and you need to polymerize it? Or is this really the polymer?

I'm not sure if I understand the question correctly. I'ww write the whole question. This part of the question concerns the polymer made by polymerizing this compound
CH2=CH-CH-OH
________'
_______CH3
Now I have to draw the structure of this polymer and identify the monomer unit. I'm not quite sure what to do?
