Subject - macromolecular chemistry

Polymerization, also called chain polymerization, is a process for the preparation of polymers in which chain growth is achieved by the reaction of an active species, capable of growth, with a monomeric molecule. In radical polymerizations, the active species is a radical. If the active species is an ion, the reaction is called ionic polymerization. .
