Sample Text:
PART A: a. i) Synthetic polymer: Synthetic polymers are manufactured macromolecules that are made of thousands of repeating units1. The term polymer is derived from the Greek words poly and mers meaning "many parts." Examples of other synthetic polymers include nylon, polyethylene, polyester, and epoxy2. The synthetic polymer, polyethylene is produced by the synthetic polymerisation of ethylene, a gaseous hydrocarbon. ii) Monomer: Monomer is the scientific term to describe the small, repeating molecules used to make up a polymer. Large quantity of monomer units combine to form polymers in a process called polymerisation. Polymers usually consist of tens of thousands of monomers, all covalently bonded together1. For example, the polymer, polyethylene, is composed of several monomers called ethylene mol...

Organic Chemistry Extended Response Task: Plastic

This student studied:
QCE - Year 12 - Chemistry

Plastic is something of a wonder material. It is cheap, capable of being made into any conceivable shape, and in most cases - virtually indestructible. And since the 1950s, it has proven so useful to human civilisation that a whopping 8.3 billion metric tonnes has been produced worldwide (University of Georgia, 2017). But today, over three quarters of that indestructible plastic is waste (Masse, 2017). Much of it exists either in landfill, or as pollution in our environment.
