Most (not all) are polymers made 1. up of repeating units called monomers monomers 2. Synthesis is by ____________, 2. ____________ breakdown is by hydrolysis of hydrolysis monomers monomers Fig. 5.2 Synthesis is by ___________, ___________ (removing water). (removing Breakdown is by Breakdown hydrolysis hydrolysis (addition of water). water). 1.
