- n. Plural form of polymer.
“A better way of making old wine more palatable is to pur it over clingfilm/saran wrap into a decanter/large glass and drink from tere. the long chain polymers of the film (polythene to be precise) bind to 2,4,6-trichloranisole (the chemical that makes wine smell musty/old - abbreviated to TCA) and, for a better word, refreshes it.”
“Researchers are working to embed biodegradable starch in polymers, which are used to make plastics.”
“A drawback of some organic radical polymers is the fact they are soluble in the electrolyte solution which results in self-discharging of the battery – but the polymer must be soluble so it can be spin-coated.”
“One reason for the great commercial potential of conductive and semiconductive polymers is that they can be produced quickly and cheaply.”
“Research on conductive polymers is also closely related to the rapid development in molecular electronics.”
“With this, de Gennes opened the way for new descriptions of complicated order phenomena in polymers, which are based on general physical principles of phase transition.”
“University of Melbourne's David Solomon and Ezio Rizzardo with CISRO Materials Science and Engineering will received the award from Prime Minister Guillard for developing technologies to create materials called polymers, mainly plastics, one molecule at a time.”
“Stretching a bit of saliva between the thumb and forefinger demonstrates a long-mysterious phenomenon that causes some fluids containing long molecules called polymers to form beads, while others do not.”
“Researchers have discovered precisely why strands of some fluids containing long molecules called polymers form beads when stretched, findings that could be used to improve industrial processes and for administering drugs in "personalized medicine.”
“Dr Patrick McGowan, a chemist at the University of Leeds who was one of the team that developed the new dyeing process, said: We have developed this for use with synthetic fabrics which are made of long chains of molecules known as polymers and are notoriously difficult to dye.”
