Polymerisation of Alkenes

  1. Polymerisation is a process of combining monomer molecules together in a chemical reaction to form polymer chains.
  2. The molecule of alkenes can combine together through addition reaction to form a long chain polymer.
  3. In the reaction, alkene molecules undergo addition reaction at the temperature of 200°C and pressure of 1200 atm.
  4. Thousands of alkene molecule join together to form a long chain molecules called poly(ethene) - commonly called polythene..
