Chain-Growth Polymer

Chain-Growth Polymer Definition:

A polymer that is formed under conditions in which the monomers do not react directly with each other, but rather, each monomer is added to the growing chain, one at a time.

Chain-Growth Polymer Explained:

Polymers can be assembled through different mechanisms. The chain-growth mechanism involved one reaction point, referred to as the growth point. It is at this site that monomers attach to the growing polymer.
