Polymer


The word polymer is coined from two Greek words: poly means many and mer means unit or part. The term polymer is defined as very large molecules having high molecular mass (103-107u). These are also referred to as macromolecules, which are formed by joining of repeating structural units on a large scale. The repeating structural units are derived from some simple and reactive molecules known as monomers and are linked to each other by covalent bonds. This process of formation of polymers from respective monomers is called polymerization. Polymers are classified on the basis of their source as natural, semi-synthetic and synthetic. On the basis of structure of they are classified as linear, branched chain and crossed link or network polymers.

Polymer is a large molecule or macromolecule, which is composed of many repeated subunits. They have broad range of properties; both synthetic and natural polymers play an essential and ubiquitous role in everyday life. Polymers are derived from monomers that are they occur from recurring structural units. They are found in the human body, animals, plants, minerals and manufactured products. Example of substances that contain polymer, diamond, concrete, quartz, glass, nylon, plastics, DNA, tires, cotton, hair, bread, and paint.

They have different properties, like, they are composed of monomers, and their nomenclature is generally based upon the type of monomer residues comprising the polymer. Polymers can be of different type, i.e. a homopolymer will have all the same polymers, like poly vinyl chloride, polyethylene and cellulose or they can be a co-polymer, which contains a mixture of repeating units.

OMICS Group International is a unique blend of International conferences and open access publications. OMICS Group was established in the year 2007 with an aim of “Making the information on Sciences and Technology-Open Access” It publishes journals in all aspects of Science, Engineering, Management and Technology; it publishes around 6th International Conference and Exhibition on Analytical & Bioanalytical Techniques during Sep 1-3, 2015 at Valencia, Spain. This Scientific event is a platform for expert’s interaction simultaneously with networking opportunities. The B2B meetings and scientific partnering provides the opportunity to explore the innovative ideas of the other communities, companies and associations. Thus these ideas can be implemented and new collaborations and deals can be made with the associations.
