Which two monomers may combine to form a polyester?
To create polyester two different kinds of monomers called ETHENE and PROPENE are needed to make double bonds in the chemical reaction.
Monomer - terephthalic acid and ethylene
Polyester is also known as polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and the two monomer that combine to produce polyester are terephthalic acid and ethylene
Polyester can be produced from two other sets of monomers also such as monomers containing one carboxyl group and one hydroxyl group.
An example of this kind of polyester is one made up of lactic acid and glycolic acid.
