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?
(c) Calculate the degree of polymerization (n) of polystyrene with a molecular weight of 3.091X10^6 g/mol.
b) Addition polymerization
c) 3.091×10^6 / 104.15 = 29678.34
