Polymer engineering is generally an engineering field that designs, analyses, or modifies polymer materials. Polymer engineering covers aspects of the petrochemical industry, polymerization, structure and characterization of polymers, properties of polymers, compounding and processing of polymers and description of major polymers, structure property relations and applications. The main scope polymer engineering is to increase the polymer testing for plastics their composites are still increasing rapidly due to their below average cost and ease of manufacture.
Polymer physics is the field of physics that studies polymers, their functions, mechanical properties, as well as the kinetics of reactions involving degradation and polymerisation of polymers and monomers. Polymers are large molecules and thus are very complicated for solving a deterministic method. It mainly focuses on the perspective of condensed matter physics
Polymer molecules are huge, macromolecules that have internal covalent bonds. For most polymers, these molecules form very long chains. The backbone is a string of carbon atoms, often single bonded. Polymers are composed of basic structures called mer units. A molecule with just one mer is a monomer. Copolymers are polymers composed of two or more different types of monomers.
Functional polymers are macromolecules to which chemically bound functional groups are attached which can be utilized as reagents, catalysts, protecting groups, etc The. properties of such materials are often determined by the presence of chemical. functional groups that are dissimilar to those of the backbone chains. Functional polymers have low cost, ease to process and a range of attractive mechanical characteristics for functional organic molecules.
Synthetic polymers are human-made polymers. From the utility point of view, they can be classified into four main categories: thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers and synthetic fibres. They are found commonly in a variety of consumer products such as money, glue, etc. Polymers are durable, lightweight, easy, and cheap to make. They are also very recyclable. Many clothing items are made from synthetic polymers, and all plastics are made from synthetic polymers.

Polymeric nanoparticles have a matrix architecture composed of biodegradable and biocompatible polymers of synthetic or natural origin. The most widely used synthetic polymers are polylactide, polylactide–polyglycolide copolymers, polycaprolactones, and polyacrylates. Lactide–glycoside copolymer is an extensively explored copolymer. Among the various natural polymers, alginate, albumin, or chitosan have been widely explored.
Non- Biodegradable polymers are solid substances that are made up of long carbon chains with strong chemical bonds between the atoms and hence are harder to be broken down by microbes.
Polymer physics deals with the physical structure and also the properties of polymers, as well as the reaction kinetics of polymerization of monomers and degradation of polymers. Polymers are giant molecules and therefore are terribly sophisticated for resolution employing a settled methodology. In the state of liquid, polymer is strongly depends on the temperature. The thermal fluctuation affects the shape of a polymer when there is an external temperature is given to a liquid state of polymer. There are many applications of polymer physics with in the space of optoelectronics, coating, medicine, food and so on. The polymers can be made in a chain form. There are two types of polymer chain.

Polymerisation is the chemical process of thousands of monomers joining together to form polymers or polymeric compound. Usually it takes thousands of monomers to make a single polymer. Addition polymerisation is the type of polymerisation reaction that occurs when you take the monomers and simply add them together. There are two basic types of polymerisation. They are step-growth polymerisation and chain-growth polymerisation

Bio-polymers are polymers produced by living organisms; in alternative words, they are compound biomolecules. Bio-polymers provide an alternative to oil based plastics, as they are made up off plants, usually polymers of starch or polylactic acid (PLA). They are presently used for luggage bags, cutlery and plates, pens, clothing, credit cards, food packaging, agricultural films, teabags, occasional filters, diapers and napkins. Bio-plastics are plastics derived from renewable biomass sources, like vegetable fats and oils, corn starch, straw, woodchips, food waste, etc. Bio-plastics are not free of environmental impact, and the carbon emissions related to growing crops and changing these into the specified chemicals has to be taken into consideration.
There are four main kinds of bio-polymer based respectively on:
· Synthetic materials
Synthetic polymers are human-made polymers. Synthetic polymers are derived from crude oil, and created by scientists and engineers. Examples of synthetic polymers include nylon, polythene, polyester, Teflon, and epoxy. Examples of naturally occurring polymers are silk, wool, DNA, polysaccharide and proteins. Green and Natural Polymers Are on the Rise. As their name implies, natural polymers (or biopolymers) are polymers that occur naturally or are produced by living organisms (such as polysaccharide, silk, chitin, protein, DNA).
The powder will be chemical compound or many other alternative materials and a range of binders will be utilized based on the powder used. Fused filament fabrication (FFF) (or fused deposition modelling – FDM) was developed in the early 1990s as another 3D printing approach that like SLS uses preformed polymer as the building material. PLA is a biodegradable plastic made from renewables such as corn-starch. While several 3D-printer manufacturers are providing metal 3D-printing services, it’ll be some time before the economies of scale that helped bring down the price of plastic 3D printing affect the DMLS market.

The chemical gas polymerization process of the UOP operates on olefin-containing gases. In both thermal and catalytic polymerization processes, the feedstock is usually pretreated to remove sulfur and nitrogen compounds. This method converts propylene and butylene to high-octane fuel or petrochemical polymers. Polymerization may be a method in which a substance of low molecular weight is transformed into one of the same composition but of higher molecular weight, maintaining the atomic arrangement present in the basic molecule.The stability of petroleum is dependent upon the molecular relationships of asphaltene and organic compound constituents and also the balance with the other constituents of petroleum. The asphaltene constituents are the highest molecular weight heaviest and most polar compounds in crude oil. During crude purification, the asphaltene compounds are non-distillable and remain in the residual fuels as the distillable fractions are removed.
