H2N(CH2)6NH2 + ClC(CH2)8CCl -------> [- N(CH2)6N - C(CH2)8C - ] + 2 HCl
Would this molecule resemble an amine or an amide? Why/How?
If you look carefully at the reaction, you will find that the actual polymerization involves the reaction of the primary amine group (NH2) with the acid chloride group (ClC=O). When the ...
This solution explains how to construct a portion of a Nylon polymer molecule consisting of 3 amine monomers and 2 organic chloride links.
