Polymer structure and intermolecular forces

LD and HD poly(ethene) The properties of polymers depend on what they are made from and the conditions under which they are made. For example, low density (LDPE) and high density (HDPE) poly(ethene) are produced using different catalysts and reaction conditions. LDPE HDPE branches on polymer molecules many few relative strength weak strong maximum usable temperature 85 ºC 120 ºC HDPE is more suited for
