A polymer is a large molecule, or macromolecule, composed of many repeated subunits. Due to their broad range of properties, both synthetic and natural polymers play essential and ubiquitous roles in everyday life. Polymers can be organic or inorganic.

Polymers can be natural (cellulose, rubber, etc.) or synthetic (polystyrene, nitrocellulose, polyethylene, PVC, etc.). Inorganic polymers also exist (silicon nitride, silicones, etc.).
