Classification of Polymers on the Basis of Molecular Forces

Classification of Polymers on the Basis of Molecular Forces: The properties of polymers like tensile strength, toughness, elasticity etc. depend upon the intermolecular forces of attraction like Vander Waals Forces, H-bonds etc. between the adjacent polymer chains. These forces are also present in small molecules but these are more significant (effective) in macromolecules since their magnitude …
