(i) addition reactions
Occurs when monomers join with the elimination of a small molecule e.g. water from between each unit.
Occurs when unsaturated monomers are linked to form a saturated polymer.
Natural Condensation polymers e.g protein and starch
Synthetic or man-made condensation polymers e.g. nylon and terylene
Polysaccarides- Saccaride Linkage
