Polymerization of Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,10 - pslc
Polyamides (PAs) are produced either by the reaction of a diacid with a diamine or by ring-opening polymerization of lactams. They are either all aliphatic or all aromatic. The aromatic polyamides, called aramids, have higher strength, better solvent, flame and heat resistance and greater dimensional stability than the all aliphatic amides (Nylon) but are much more expensive and more difficult to produce.
Explains the concept of the molecular weight of polymers.
The main aim of my experiment is to find the rate of reaction over time taken and the rate of reaction when the concentration of hydrochloric acid increases or decreases.
Although organic reactions have been conducted by man since the discovery of fire, the science of Organic chemistry did not develop until the turn of the eighteenth century, mainly in France at first, then in Germany, later on in England....
