Caption: Computer graphics representation of the packed chains of the polyethylene molecule, a long chain hydrocarbon with a high molecular weight. Polyethylene is made by the polymerisation of ethylene (C2H4), by heating under pressure in the presence of oxygen. It may be essentially considered as an alkane with a very long chain.
