polymer

A chain molecule made up of repetitions of smaller chemical units or molecules called monomers. Polysaccharides, for instance, are long chains made up of repeated units of simpler monosaccharide sugars. Proteins are polymers of AMINO ACIDS. Polymerization is the process of causing many similar or identical small chemical groups to link up to form a long chain. From Greek, poly , many and meros , a part.
