Ethylene is a simple molecule composed of two double-bonded carbon atoms and four hydrogen atoms. At room temperature it is a gas. Ethylene molecules can be chemically bonded, end-to-end, to form a chain or polymer called polyethylene. Depending on how many monomers of ethylene are joined, the polyethylene will be low, medium, or high molecular weight. The size of the polyethylene polymer determines its physical characteristics and the type of products in which it can be used.


Ethylene is used to make up plastic

The term “plastics” includes materials composed of various elements such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, chlorine, and sulfur. Plastics typically have high molecular weight, meaning each molecule can have thousands of atoms bound together.
