Worksheet: Addition Polymerization

In this worksheet, we will practice defining an addition polymerization and determining the structure of an addition polymer from the monomer reactant.

Q1:

Addition polymers may be made from many types of monomer. What is the most common type of monomer used to make addition polymers?

  • A Alkynes
  • B Alkanes
  • C Alcohols
  • D Alkenes
  • ECarboxylic acids

Q2:

Which of the following is the best description of an addition polymer?

  • A A polymer made by linking different monomers in a well-defined sequence
  • B A polymer made by linking monomers together and releasing water or other small molecules
  • C A polymer that can be easily added to other polymers
  • D A polymer made by linking monomers together, without forming by-products
  • E A polymer that can be linked to itself to form a longer polymer
