(e) This process is called . When unsaturated monomers join together to form a polymer with no other being produced in the reaction, the process is called polymerisation.

(f) Polymers are often commonly called and are made by polymerisation. For example, , often called polythene is made by polymerising the simplest alkene, . Another plastic called poly(propene) is made from .
