Condensation Polymerization

  • Condensation polymerization is also known as step polymerization.
  • For condensation polymerization, monomers should have at least two functional groups. Both functional groups may be same or different.
  • Monomers having only two functional groups always give linear polymer. For example,

  • Condensation polymers do not contain all the atoms initially present in the monomers. Some atoms are lost in the form of small molecules.
  • Monomer having three functional groups always gives cross-linked polymer. Examples are urea–formaldehyde resin, phenol–formaldehyde resin.
