Polymers are giant compounds made out of small basic units. These polymers are also called macromolecules. The building blocks of a polymer are called monomers. The process of producing a polymer through a monomer is called polymerization. Some polymers are made of the same type of monomers. These are called homopolymers. But some polymers are made of different types of monomers. They are called heteropolymers. Heteropolymers are also called copolymers when two types of monomers are involved in the polymerization process. The main difference between homopolymer and heteropolymer is that homopolymers are made from the polymerization of identical monomers whereas heteropolymers are made from the polymerization of two or more different monomers.
