Q. In the context of polymer science, what does the terms isotactic, syndiotactic and atactic signify?
A. Polymers can be classified into three types, namely isotactic, syndiotactic and atactic, based on the tacticity of the polymer. The tacticity of a polymer is determined by what side of the polymer chain the pendant (substituent) groups are on.
(1) Isotactic ...
