Condensation Polymerization

This organic chemistry lab activity is appropriate for teaching polymerization, percent yield, melting point, or the types and uses of polymer materials. Chemistry pupils imagine that they are working for a company to develop a special polymer and then work in the lab to synthesize nylon. The teacher page offers very little instruction, but since the student lab handout is thorough, it provides enough for you to carry this lesson out in your advanced or organic chemistry class.
