What are alkanes?

Saturated hydrocarbons

4

What are alkenes?

Unsaturated hydrocarbons

5

What do double bonds involve?

Two shared pairs of electrons

What is a hydrocarbon?

A compound formed between carbon atoms and hydrogen only

9

What are polymers?

Long chain molecules made from many small molecules. Called monomers

What does addition polymerisation need?

High pressure
Catalyst

11

What is addition polymerisation?

When lots of unsaturated monomer molecules(alkenes) open up their double bonds and join together to form polymer chains
