The monomer , ethene or ethylene, is obtained in large quantities from the cracking of petroleum.
Addition polymerization reactions use free radical monomers to produce polymers.
These results were ascribed to a self-association process undergone by the monomeric antibiotic molecules within the lipid bilayer.
It is produced through a free radical polymerization reaction of styrene monomers .
What Blackmond realised was that it was the dimers, not the monomers , that were catalytically active, and only the heterochiral dimer was not active.
In red wines oxygen aids in the formation of pigmented tannins with colours that are more permanent than those of monomeric anthocyanins.
Polymerization is another type of chemical reaction employed in organic synthesis to couple small monomeric units into a much larger chain.
In all cases the monomeric lipid molecule is virtually absent, dimeric or trimeric species predominating in each case.
Sodium polyacrylate is a polymer containing many acrylate monomers connected end-to-end in a large chain.
Polystyrene is a high molecular weight polymer made up of repeating monomeric units of styrene.
