Carboxylic acid is where the carboxyl group is bound to a carbon and a hydroxyl group
Esters contain a carboxyl group and are very similar to a carboxylic acid except the terminal hydrogen is replaced with a carbon or chain of carbons
Many different condensation polymers are formed from two separate compounds
