MSE2034 HW#3 Max Score = 10/10. Point values specified below. Due Thursday, February 4 1) Two of the most common types of polymers we hear about in everyday use are “vinyls” and “polyesters”. These are not specific compositions, but rather classes of material. Using resources outside the text, identify the structural characteristics shared by all vinyl polymers and all polyesters. Show a generic mer unit for each polymer class analogous to those shown in Table 1 4.3, using “R-groups” as placeholders for parts of the mer that can vary and making sure you specify any restrictions on what the R-group can be. Give a specific example or two of polymers that fit into each category. [2 pts] 2) Again using resources outside the text, define what an ‘epoxy’ polymer is, citing any specifics required, and explain how its formation should differ from the addition polymerization process described in Ch. 1 4. State any relevant structural characteristics mentioned in Ch. 1 4 that should apply to common epoxies. [1 pt]
