  • Paul Lemur: An Explanation Of Polymers

    Before we can talk about what a polymer is, we need to know about ATOMS and ELEMENTS and MOLECULES. To learn about atoms and elements and molecules, click here. Paul Lemur This is PAUL LEMUR. He's a lemur named Paul. Polymers are made up of many many molecules all strung together to form really long chains (and sometimes more complicated structures, too). What makes polymers so fun is that how they act depends on what kinds of molecules they're made up of and how they're put together. The properties of anything made out of polymers really reflect what's going on at the ultra-tiny (molecular) level. So, things that are made of polymers look, feel, and act depending on how their atoms and molecules are connected, as well as which ones we…

  • The Importance Of Conductivity In Polymers

    A polymer is a large molecule which is formed by repeated linkage of small molecule called monomers. Conducting polymer have been the subjects for many decades as possible synthetic metals. Many of these polymer, especially those with a conjugated pi-bond system ,often yield higher conductivity once having undergone the doping process. Polymers are typically insulators due to their very high resistivity .Insulators have tightly bound electrons so that nearly no electron flow occurs ,and they…

  • Importance Of Organic Polymers

    Organics polymers are emerging materials in various optical and optoelectronic applications due to their superior properties over conventional inorganic materials. For example, devices made out of organic polymers can be flexible, have better mechanical stability on impact, light weight and significantly effective in the cost of manufacturing. Due to these alluring properties, organic polymers are becoming extremely important in applications such as transparent/flexible optoelectronics,…

  • The Chemistry Behind Polymers

    The chemistry behind polymers, the substance from which plastic is made, is very important in the everyday lives of the average person. To start, “The simplest definition of a polymer is a useful chemical made of many repeating units” (“The Basics”). Further, polymers are not limited to just plastics, but all types of plastic are polymers (“Plastics”). Some examples of polymers include cellulose and DNA (“Plastics”). Plastics are used everywhere in life today, and understanding the way that they…

  • Importance Of Polymers

    Polymer - A word, which is connote for large molecules (that a molecule made from simple repeating units called monomers). The monomers are main building block of polymers. Polymers play an essential and ubiquitous role in everyday human life because of the extraordinary range of properties. Polymers are among the most widely used and important type of materials today. Polymers have been with us from the beginning of time; they form the very basis (building blocks) of life. Animals, plants all…

  • Importance Of Inhibition Efficiency Of Polymers

    tract The inhibition efficiency of polymers are highly dependent on group functionalities as well as adsorption characteristics, electronic properties, and molecular weight. The modification of these properties pave the way for future research in inhibitor technology. Introduction The inherent protection of metals and their alloys used in industry are of the upmost importance when it comes to longevity and reliability of structures. Many chemical compounds have been developed over the years…

  • The Polymers

    to ever be created. They treated every creature with great respect. Though they took very little from the Earth, they were very grateful. To the right were the Polymers, a very mean-spirited group. This group found great pleasure in depleting Earth's bountiful lands, and destroying Earth's beautiful creatures. While the Aerosols were constantly trying to make peace and live in harmony, the Polymers craved constant chaos throughout the land. One…

  • Case Study: Nanocomposite And Nannofiller

    composite material such as strength, conductivity and wear resistance. The main reason for using nanoparticle is because of their large surface to volume which increases the filler- matrix interaction, thus increasing the effect of the material properties [18]. According to Yang et al, nanocomposites have been shown to afford remarkable property enhancements compared to the conventional composite. Polymer nanocomposites with layered silicates and carbon nanotubes have attracted great interest…
