Why can synthetic polymers be altered to create so many different kinds of materials? They have a hydrocarbon backbone that can be chemically altered. They have certain additives that react to form newer materials. They have a low molecular weight that helps alter their composition.

\(Hint\) The polarity of the solvent effect on the molecular weight of synthetic polymers is based on the condensation reaction- molecular mass is what it depends on. @kaitkaitkait
