Polymer: large molecules made up of simple repeating units Greek poly, meaning many, and mer, meaning part Synonymous Term: Macromolecules

Chap 2. Types of Polymers & Definitions Polymer: a large molecule whose structures depends on the monomer or monomers used in preparation Oligomer: low-molecular weight polymer (a few monomer units) Repeating unit (RU): monomeric units (examples: polyethylene) Degree of polymerization (DP): the total number of structural units, including end groups. It is related to both chain length and molecular weight Vinyl acetate (a important industrial monomer) If DP (n) = 500, for example, M.W.= 500 × 86(m.w. of structural unit) = 43,000 Because polymer chains within a given polymer sample are almost always of varying lengths (except for certain natural polymers like proteins), we normally refer to the average degree of Polymerization (DP). n




(a) Linear (b) Branched (c) Network (a) Star (b) Comb (c) Ladder (d) Semiladder Representation of polymer types


Network polymers arise when polymer chains are linked together or when polyfunctional instead of difunctional monomers are used. Ex) Vulcanized rubber Polymer Chains crosslink Excellent dimensional stability X-polymers will not melt or flow and cannot be molded. (thermosetting or thermoset  thermoplastic) 3. Usually insoluble, only swelling Network Polymers (Crosslinked polymers)


Traditionally, polymers have been classified into two main groups: 1) addition polymers and 2) condensation polymers (first proposed by Carothers) 1. Polyester from lactone and ω-hydroxycarboxylic acid: 2. Polyamide from lactam and ω-amino acid Polymerization processes (traditional)


3. Polyurethane from diisocyanate and diol 4. Hydrocarbon polymer from ethylene and ,ω-dibromide by the Wurtz reaction


In more recent years the emphasis has changed to classifying polymers according to whether the polymerization occurs in a stepwise fashion (step reaction or step growth) or by propagating from a growing chain (chain reaction or chain growth). 1. Step reaction polymerization Reactive functional group in one molecule Two difunctional monomers Ex) Polyesterification  diol + dibasic acid or intermolecularly between hydroxy acid molecules Polymerization processes (recent)


If one assumes that there are No molecules initially and N molecules (total) after a given reaction period, then amount reacted is No-N. The reaction conversion, p, is then given by the expression or Carothers’ equation


2. Chain-reaction polymerization Chain-reaction polymerization involves two distinct kinetic steps, initiation and propagation. Initiation Propagation + . + . In both addition and ring-opening polymerization, the reaction propagates at a reactive chain end and continues until a termination reaction renders the chain end inactive (e.g., combination of radicals), or until monomer is completely consumed.


Step reaction Growth occurs throughout matrix by reaction between monomers, oligomers, and polymers DP low to moderate Monomer consumed rapidly while molecular weight increases slowly No initiator needed; same reaction mechanism throughout No termination step; end groups still reactive Polymerization rate decreases steadily as functional groups consumed 3. Comparison of step-reaction and chain-reaction polymerization Chain reaction Growth occurs by successive addition of monomer units to limited number of growing chains DP can be very high Monomer consumed relatively slowly, but molecular weight increases rapidly Initiation and propagation mechanisms different Usually chain-terminating step involved Polymerization rate increases initially as initiator units generated; remains relatively constant until monomer depleted

How to Determine Tacticity? 13C NMR is a very powerful way to determine the microstructure of a polymer.


Unit cell Six crystal system  Isometric; 3 mutually perpendicular axes of equal length.  Tetragonal; 3 perpendicular axes are equal in length.  Orthogonal; 3 perpendicular all of different length.  Monoclinic; 3 axes of unequal length. 2 are not  to each other both are  to the third  Triclinic; all 3 axes of different length.  Hexagonal; 4 axes, 3axes in the same plane & symmetrically spa and of equal length.

결정화의 조건 정규 결정 격자로 사슬이 packing 되려면 ordered, regular chain structure가 필요. 따라서 stereoregular structure 를 가진 고분자가 irregular structure 를 가진 고분자보다 결정화가 될 확률이 높다. 결정격자간 2차 간력이 강해서 열에너지에 의한 무질서 효과(엔트로피 효과)를 극복할 수 있어야 함. biaxial stress(stretching) is stronger than uniaxial stretch ∵different arrangement of chain.


Crystallizability 고분자의 화학구조에 의한 고유의 성질  구조의 규칙성  강한 친화력 Crystallinity 가공 history 에 직접 의존  Temperature/time  Stress/time


몇가지 결정 MODELS Fringed-Micelle Model fringed-micelle(or crystallites) 가 amorphous matrix 내에 퍼져 있음 orientation


2. Folded-Chain Crystallites 희박용액으로부터 single crystal 이 성장하여 polymer crystal 이 생성됨을 발견. 냉각 또는 solvent 가 evaporation함으로서 thin, pyramidal, or platelike polymer crystal(lamellae)가 생성. 이 결정들은 두께 약 100Å에 수십만 Å 길이를 가짐. X-ray 결과로는 chain axis가 flat surface에 수직으로 배열 됨이 알려짐. 또한 각자 사슬들이 1000Å 이상의 길이를 가짐. 따라서 chain이 folded back and forth 할 수 밖에 없다는 결론. Dilute solution으로부터 뿐 아니라 melt로부터도 이 같은 lamellae 형성 model이 적용됨.


3. Extended-Chain X-tal melt 상태에서 extension(stress)을 가하면서 결정화가 일어날 때 확장하는 방향으로 사슬이 배열하며 fibrillar 구조를 형성. 이들은 extended-chain crystals로 알려져 있고 이들은 먼저 서로 평행으로 배열되어 있고 chain folding은 minimum. “Shish-Kebab”


4. Spherulites 고분자 사슬들은 crystallites를 형성할 수 있도록 배열되어 있으며 이들 crystallites들은 spherulites라고 하는 커다란 집합체로 되어 있다. 이들 spherulites는 핵형성점 으로부터 원형으로 성장. 따라서 각개 spherulites는 존재하는 핵의 숫자로부터 조절될 수 있으며 핵이 더 있으면 더 많은 작은 spherulites가 됨. Spherulites가 큰 것들은 고분자의 brittleness . Brittleness를 적게 하려면 nucleating agent를 첨가하든가 고분자를 shock cooling 함.
