About this Playlist
Defining and Identifying Polymers
We use polymer-based products everyday, but we probably don't realize it. For example, what do CDs, sneakers, paper plates and contact lenses all have in common? Aside from sitting in your junk drawer, these items are all made from polymers—long strings of molecules linked together. These microscopically tiny structures are made of repeating sets of individual molecules known as monomers, which unleash varying sets of physical and chemical properties when strung together into a polymer. Silicon, carbon, plastic and rubber are all examples of the wide variety of textures and scientific makeup polymers exhibit when monomers are mixed and matched in assorted ways. Think of monomers as basic elements of a recipe—flour, sugar, oil. When put together in different combinations and in varying amounts, the result can be a cake, cream puff, biscuit or homemade glue.
How common are these molecular chain links? Well, because hundreds of objects in everyday life (your computer keyboard for example) are comprised of polymers, they're basically impossible to avoid. This playlist takes polymers out from under the microscope and into your hands with poly-based crafts, experiments and everyday applications.
About this Video
Learn how to draw out the formula of poly-chloroethene and poly-propene and learn about some of their uses in real life. At Fuse School, teachers and animators come together to make fun & easy-to-understand videos in Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Maths & ICT. Our OER are available free of charge to anyone. Make sure to subscribe - we are going to create 3000 more! Fuse School is currently running the Chemistry Journey project - a Chemistry Education project by The Fuse School sponsored by Fuse. These videos can be used in a flipped classroom model or as a revision aid.
