polymer

A macromolecule made of repeating (monomer) units or protomers.

Polymer

A macro-molecular substance made up of many repeating smaller units (monomers) bonded together in chain-like sequences which may or may not be cross-linked. Some monomers such as ethylene (the related polymer is polyethylene) are simple molecules; others, such as the nucleotides of which DNA and RNA are constructed, are large and complex.

Polymer

The term `polymer` derives from the ancient Greek word πολύς (polus, meaning `many, much`) and μέρος (meros, meaning `parts`), and refers to a molecule whose structure is composed of multiple repeating units, from which originates a characteristic of high relative molecular mass and attendant properties. The units composing polymer...
