A: They contain covalent bonds between various linear polymer chains.
B: They are formed from bi-and tri-functional monomers.
C: Examples are bakelite and melamine.
D: They contain strong covalent bonds in their polymer chains.
Cross-linked or network polymers are usually formed from bi-functional & tri-functional monomers and contains strong covalent bond between various linear polymer chains like Melamine, Bakelite etc.
Q.5. Natural rubber has: (2016)
A: Random cis - and trans-configuration
B: All cis-configuration
C: All trans-configuration
D: Alternate cis - and trans - configuration
The repeating unit in natural rubber has the cis-configurations with chain extensions on the same side of the ethylene double bond, which is essential for elasticity. If the configuration is trans, the polymer is hard plastic.
