  1. Vinyl polymer

    Vinyl polymers are a group of polymers derived from vinyl monomers. Their backbone is an extended alkane chain, made by polymerizing an alkene group into a chain. In popular usage, "vinyl" refers only to polyvinyl chloride. Vinyl polymers are the most common type of plastic: ⁕Polymerized simple alkenes: polyethylene from ethene, polypropylene from propene and polybutadiene from butadiene. ⁕Polystyrene is made from styrene or "vinyl benzene". ⁕Polyvinyl chloride is made by polymerization of the monomer vinyl chloride CH2=CHCl ⁕Polyvinyl acetate is made by polymerization of vinyl acetate. In a water suspension, this is used as a glue. ⁕Polyvinyl alcohol is produced by hydrolysis of polyvinyl acetate. ⁕Polyacrylonitrile is prepared from acrylonitrile Other vinyl monomers with a 1,2-substitution pattern do as a general rule not polymerize due to steric hindrance it is thermodynamically still favorable. As an exception it was found that the monomer fumaronitrile does polymerize but only in a very special way
