5.20 understand that some polymers, such as nylon, form by a different process called condensation polymerisation

Two monomers join together when they loose a small molecule made up of atoms from both monomers.
Commonly, an H atom from one and and OH molecule from the other form water (hence condensation reaction) and the two monomers become joined.
