A cartoon showing a PVC chain, a ball and stick and a structural formula of chloroethene, a PVC monomer and some uses for polymers including sportswear, paint and disposable cutlery
A ball and stick model of chloroethene - two carbons (grey) joined by a double bond, one is also bonded with two hydrogens (white) and the other has one hydrogen and one chlorine (green)
Ball and stick model of a polymer chain of poly(chloroethene) poly(vinylchloride) (PVC). There is a chain of carbons (grey) through the middle, every other one is bonded with a hydrogen (white) and a chlorine (green) atom and the rest have two hydrogens.
Chemical structures of chloroethene as a molecule and as a monomer for PVC
