Give the structure of the addition polymer that forms from the monomer CH 2 =CHF .

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The structure of additional polymer formed from the given monomer is to be given.

Concept introduction:

A monomer is a single molecule of any polymeric compound. It can be bonded to other compounds with a double bond or a single bond to form a polymer. An addition polymer is formed by simple linking of monomer units without co-generating the product.

Answer to Problem 15.1YT

Solution: -CH2CHFCH2CHFCH2CHFCH2CHF-

Explanation of Solution

Polymers are long chain organic compounds that are generated by many monomer units. Many monomers like alkene or other compounds contain a double bond, which on combination converted into a single bond.

Chemistry In Focus, Chapter 15, Problem 15.1YT

It is a complete form of polymer. All double bonds are converted into single bonds. In this process, no atom is lost or gained, but a monomer is joined to form a polymer by the addition reaction.

A simple representation of addition of monomer is -[A-A-A-A-A-A]-.

Similarly, monomer CH2= CHF join to form addition polymer as:

-CH2CHFCH2CHFCH2CHFCH2CHF-

Here, it represents the polymer in the form of polyvinyl fluoride. PVF is a synthetic organic compound, which is formed by polymerization of vinyl fluoride under pressure in the presence of a catalyst.

Conclusion

Polyvinyl fluoride is very useful in household products because of its resistant capability.
