The usual synthetic route to polyester is by condensation of a dicarboxylic acid with a diol. The best known polyester is poly (ethylene terephthalate) prepared from ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid.


Polyester forms when an alcohol functional group reacts with a carboxylic acid functional group.


The monomer for homopolymer polyester must have an alcohol functional group and a carboxylic acid functional group present in the structure.
