Definition of high polymer in English:

high polymer


  • A polymer having a high molecular weight, such as those used in plastics and resins.

    • ‘When it is desired to express the results of solution viscosity measurements upon a high polymer as a molecular weight, the viscosity average molecular weight M is used.’
    • ‘These are high polymers with a degree of polymerization of 15,000 or above, and molecular weights of two million or higher.’
    • ‘Achieving polydispersities lower than 1.15 for high polymers is generally extremely difficult.’
    • ‘Since the conductive high polymer is driven by a chemical mechanism called the electrolytic expansion/contraction, the pump can be driven with low voltage without emitting any sound.’
