College-level or AP chemists use phthalic anhydride to synthesize two different polyesters, one linear and one cross-linked in structure. A detailed materials list and well-written procedures are provided on a lab sheet. Learners write out the chemical equations for the reactions that occur. Plenty of support is provided via instructor's notes so that you can insert this into your curriculum when teaching your class about polymerization.
