Polymers are long chains of monomeric compounds that are produced by polymerisation of these monomers. Ranging from natural to synthetic, polymers play a very ubiquitous role in pharmaceutical sciences and chemistry. Polystyrene, nylon is some of the examples of synthetic polymers whereas DNA and proteins are called as biopolymers. A most common example of polymer is polythene bag. Natural compound materials like shellac, amber, wool, silk and natural rubber are used for hundreds of years. A spread of alternative natural polymers exists, like polysaccharide, that is that the main constituent of wood and paper. The list of artificial polymers includes India rubber, phenol aldehyde rosin (or Bakelite), neoprene, nylon, polyvinyl resin (PVC or vinyl), vinylbenzene, polythene, plastic, polyacrylonitrile, PVB, silicone, and plenty of additional.
