1.4 Polymer Structure, Morphology and Thermal Transitions By nature, polymer is a complex mixture with various sizes and microstructures. In addition to the molecular weight and molecular weight distribution discussed before, the microstructure, i.e. the arrangement of the structural units relative to one another , along the polymer chain has great effects to the processibility (recyclobility), physical property and performance.

Unformatted text preview: Polymer Geometry * Structure Unit Variety Polymer having one type repeating units (monomers) is homopolymer Polymer having two type repeating units is copolymer Polymer having three typerepeating units is terpolymer In the copolymerization or terpolymerization processes, depending on the monomers chosen and the experimental techniques used, various distributions of structural units within the polymer chain may be achieved....
