What is "Polymerisation" - Definition & Explanation

A combination or association of molecules that may be of one compound or two or more compounds that react, simultaneously or consecutively, to form a regular system of molecules (usually of high molecular mass) which behaves and reacts primarily as one unit, termed a polymer.

NOTE:

Not all polymers are fibre-forming; fibres are formed from linear polymers only.
