Polymers questions

1. (a) Explain why the atom economy for most addition polymers is close to 100%.(b) Nylon 6,6 can be made by reacting 1,6-diaminohexane, H2N-(CH2)6-NH2, with hexanedioyl dichloride, ClCO-(CH2)4-COCl. The reaction is a condensation reaction in which peptide bonds, –CO-NH–, are formed with the loss of hydrogen chloride.The equation for the reaction is:nH2N(CH2)6NH2 + nClOC(CH2)4COCl → H−[HN(CH2)6NHCO(CH2)4CO]n−Cl...
