Answer to Question #38702 in Organic Chemistry for thiruvenkatam
The product of condensation polymer is thermoplastic or thermosetting plastic? if both products are formed in which type of reaction they are formed?
A thermoplastic, or thermosoftening plastic, is a polymer that becomes pliable or mouldable above a specific temperature, and returns to a solid state upon cooling. A thermosetting resin, also known as a thermoset, is petrochemical material that irreversibly cures. It is obvious that thermosoftening is physical process, while thermosetting is a chemical process. Sometimes it can occur as the condesational process. Hence the answer on question is the thermosetting plastic.
