A polymer is a chainlike molecule made up of small molecular units. These small molecular units are called monomers. Monomers of polymer can be joined together either naturally or synthetically. Polymer and small molecules behave very differently, which is mainly due to the molecular weight. A small molecule has a determined small value, while a polymer molecule usually has an average value and the value is bigger than small molecule's. Polymers can be classified according to different criteria. For example, depending on the source, the polymer can be divided into natural polymers and synthetic polymers. Both natural and synthetic polymers play significant roles in our daily life. The most commonly used natural polymer is cellulose, which is an important source of textile industry and its demand is still increasing. Synthetic polymers have been used everywhere in our life, such as car tires/bumpers, water pipelines, some drinking cups, containers, cellphones, clothes and shoes. According to their properties, polymers can be divided into three groups: plastic, rubber and fiber. Each type of polymer has its own unique properties. The polymers can be selected according to the requirements in practical application.
