Types of polymers
There are many different types of polymers. Some are organic, while others are inorganic. Organic polymers can be broadly grouped into either synthetic/semi-synthetic (artificial) or biological (natural) polymers. We are going to take a look at two groups of organic polymers: plastics, which are usually synthetic or semi-synthetic and biological macromolecules which are natural polymers. Both of these groups of polymers play a very important role in our lives.
