Important Points

The molecular mass of polymers varies from 103-107 u.
Rayon has a shine like silk, so also known as artificial silk.
Vulcanised rubber is also an example of semisynthetic polymers.
Due to presence of chains of varying length in a polymer sample, their molecules mass is always expressed as an average.
Bakelite due to presence of extensive crosslinking is an example of thermosetting polymer.
