chemistry

Construct the following using molecules of your choice: a) a polyester and b) a polyamide. Each drawing should have four monomers and should be original in its structure. Your polymers can not be biochemical (carbohydrate, lipid, protein, etc.). Identify the reactions as condensation or addition reactions.

Can someone provide me with a weblink I would appreciate it.

  1. Here are several sites that discuss condensation and addition polymers although I think all but two relate the first. Anyway, this should get you started. I note that some of them use generalized R-COOH etc type of reactions and you can vary the R.
