Answer :

Neoprene (also known as polychloropropene) is a polymer formed from chloroprene which is 2-chloro-1,3-butadiene through polymerization by production of free radicals in the intermediate stages of the reaction. It is thus called free radical polymerization.


Based on molecular forces, neoprene is an elastomer (polymers with weak intermolecular forces) having weak intermolecular forces of attraction.



It is an example of synthetic rubber. It provides high resistance to vegetable and mineral oils.


Note:-We know hν stands for sunlight and as there is sunlight it is obvious that the reaction will proceed via formation of free radicals.
