Abstract

Polymers are macromolecular compounds with more than 1,000 atoms. They consist of a large number of small, self-repeating molecular units (monomers). The monomers can be used in different aggregate forms, as solids, liquids or gases, to produce a virtually infinite number of possible variants of polymers. This flexibility, which is unique for engineering materials, makes it possible to customise polymers for everyday applications.
