Example of condensation polymer is?

A)

Polyethene


B)

PVC


C)

Orlon


D)

Terylene



Correct Answer :

Terylene


Explanation :

Condensation polymers are any kind of polymers formed through a condensation reaction—where molecules join together—losing small molecules as byproducts such as water or methanol.

Terylene is a condensation polymer. The class of polyesters are formed by esterification reaction of a di-carboxylic acid with a diol. This reaction is called a condensation reaction because 2 molecules of water (H2O) are eliminated for every molecule of terephthalic acid that reacts with the diol.

Natural rubber is polymer of?

A)

Isoprene


B)

Styrene


C)

Vinyl acetate


D)

Propene



Correct Answer :

Isoprene


Explanation :

Natural Rubber is a polymer of Isoprene represented as CH2=C(CH3)—CH=CH2 (2-Methyl -1, 3 – Butadiene).

Natural Rubber is mainly obtained in the form of latex from rubber tree. Latex is a sticky, milky fluid that is refined in rubber ready for commercial processing.

Because of its elasticity, flexibility and toughness, rubber is widly used in commercial and daily applications, for example tires, toys, vehicles, shoes, clothes, furniture, aircraft and bicycles.

The properties of Natural rubber can be improved by a process called Vulcanization.The Vulcanization is the process of heating raw rubber with Sulphur.

Thailand is the leading Rubber producing country in the world. Indonesia is the second where India is ranked fourth or fifth in Rubber production.
