Before getting into what polymers are on a molecular level, let's see some familiar materials that are good examples. Some examples of polymers include: plastic, nylon, rubber, wood, protein, and DNA. In this case, we will focus primarily on synthetic polymers like plastic and nylon. At the molecular level, polymers are composed of long chains of repeating molecules. The molecule that repeats in this chain is known as a monomer (or subunit).
