H8P1: Polystyrene

The monomer structure of polystyrene is shown below:

(a) Would you expect polystyrene to be a stiff or a pliable polymer?

(b) What kind of synthesis is used in the production of polystyrene from styrene monomers?
I)Addition polymerization
II)Condensation polymerization
III)Anionic polymerization

(c) Calculate the degree of polymerization (n) of polystyrene with a molecular weight of 3.091X10^6 g/mol.

  • Chemistry -

    a) stiff
    b) Addition polymerization
    c) 3.091×10^6 / 104.15 = 29678.34
