To form an addition polymer, what structural feature must the monomer possess?

Expert Solution
To determine
The special feature required to the monomer of addition polymers.

Explanation of Solution

Addition polymers: These polymers are formed by simple combination of monomer units to give a long chain of polymer. An Alkene can be the fundamental repeating unit of an addition polymer. Alkenes are unsaturated hydrocarbons which conatin carbon-carbon double bond.

The simplest alkene which is used as monomer for polyethylene is ethylene. After polymerisation the carbon-carbon double splits into carbon-carbon single bonds...
