Solution: Two molecules used in the polymer industry are azodicarbonamide and methyl cyanoacrylate. Their structures areAzodicarbonamide is used in forming polystyrene. When added to the molten plastic, it decomposes to nitrogen, carbon monoxide, and ammonia gases, which are captured as bubbles in the molten polymer. Methyl cyanoacrylate is  super glue. As the glue sets, methyl cyanoacrylate polymerizes across the carbon–carbon double bond. d. Give approximate values for the bond angles marked a through h in the previous structures.
