This activity introduces students to a consumer product that has many different types of polymers. Students will dissect a disposable diaper and take note of different types of polymers used in this consumer product. They will focus on the use of sodium polyacrylate as an absorbent used in disposable diapers. This activity can be used as an introduction to the polymers component of the organic unit or it could launch a discussion on the use of disposable consumer products.
