What are Synthetic polymers?

Synthetic polymers are chemicals made by rearranging the structure of existing molecules, especially large molecules containing carbon. The molecular chains (monomers) that make up organic molecules can be artifically strung together to create materials such as plastics, neoprene rubber, nylon and rayon.
Synthetic polymers are man-made mega-molecules. Examples of modern and revolutionary synthetic polymers include DuPont pioneering Nylon and Dacron fibers.
