A large number of molecules called monomers are joined sequentially, forming a chain in the process of polymerization. Polymers can have only one, two or three different monomers may be combined. Polymers are classified by the characteristics of the reactions by which they are formed. If all atoms in the monomers are incorporated into the polymer, the polymer is called an addition polymer.
