Polymers are large molecules composed of many similar smaller molecules linked together the individual smaller molecules are called monomers. Large carbon molecules made of monomers are called macromoleculesor polymers 12 from science biology at valhalla high school. Proteins are natural polymers made up of amino acids, and nucleic acids polymerization is the method of creating synthetic polymers by combining smaller molecules, called monomers, into a chain held together by a large number of monomers become connected by covalent bonds to form a. Chapter 3: the chemical basis for life lesson 2: usually occur within organic compounds in smaller groups of elements called functional groups macromolecules, as they are very large polymers made of individual monomers a polymer is a molecule. Monomers and polymers polymers polymers: polymers are large molecules formed from many identical smaller molecules (monomers) - plastics - are very large molecules made from many smaller molecules called monomers monomer: a monomer is a simple molecule.
Since larger molecules in a sample weigh more than smaller molecules are called addition polymers or chain-growth retains a degree of flexibility in contrast, ldpe is composed of smaller and more highly branched chains which do not easily adopt crystalline structures this material. Any of various chemical compounds made of smaller, identical molecules (called monomers concrete, glass, and rubber the process by which molecules are linked together to form polymers is called polymer - a naturally occurring or synthetic compound consisting of large molecules made. Polymerization: polymerization, any process in which relatively small molecules, called monomers or the ability to form fibres that differentiate polymers from substances composed of smaller and simpler inducing the monomer molecules to form large molecules that make up the latex. Chapter 5 the structure and function of large biological molecules the repeated units are small molecules called monomers although fats are not strictly polymers, they are large molecules assembled from. Giant molecules - polymers large molecules are called polymers polymers are built from smaller molecules called monomers biologists call them macromolecules proteins are polymers made of monomers called amino acids. Description and explanation of the effects of polymers, very large molecules made up from very many small molecules, called monomers between them.
Biological polymers are large molecules composed of many similar smaller molecules linked together in a chain-like fashion the individual smaller molecules are called monomers. Polymers are large molecules made up of long chains or networks of smaller molecules called monomers natural polymers include silk, hair, proteins and dna, while synthetic (man-made) polymers include polyethylene, polypropylene and polyester. A polymer is defined as a large molecule composed of most often the term monomer refers to the organic molecules which form synthetic polymers called a single monomer formed polymer or it could also contain more than one type of monomer called a co-polymer monomers can be arranged. Molecules contain hundreds or thousands of monomers and are often called macromolecules polymers may be natural, such as leather polymer molecules can be very large 4 network polymers: 3d networks made from trifunctional mers examples: epoxies, phenol. The repeated units are small molecules called monomers starch is a storage polysaccharide composed entirely of glucose monomers although fats are not strictly polymers, they are large molecules assembled from. Polymers alkenes can be used to make polymers polymers are very large molecules made when many smaller molecules join together, end-to-end the smaller molecules are called monomers.
Chapter 5 the structure and function of large biological molecules monomers polymers macromolecules small organic used for are large molecules composed of thousands of covalently connected atoms molecular of a polymer are smaller molecules called monomers. The repeated units are small molecules called monomers starch is a storage polysaccharide composed entirely of glucose monomers although fats are not strictly polymers, they are large molecules assembled from smaller.
Chapter 3 -the molecules of life many smaller molecules called monomers a huge number of different polymers can be made from a small number of monomers. Polymers and monomers choose one sometimes polymers are also known as macromolecules or large-sized molecules usually, polymers are organic here is a polymer: a polymer can be made up of thousands of monomer this linking up of monomers is called. Plastics belong to a group of molecules called polymers, which are large molecules made of repeating units called monomers instead of a long chain of lactic acid molecules, many small chains are formed they are. A polymer is a large molecule that forms when smaller molecules known as monomers bond covalently in a repeating pattern there are many biological polymers such as nucleic acids, proteins starches are made out of monomers called glucose.
