Which set of the following is the monomers of PHBV?

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\text{3-hydroxybutanoic acid,adipic acid}\\(b)\; \text{3-hydroxypentanoic acid,adipic acid}\\(c)\;\text{3-hydroxypentanoic acid,3-hydroxybutanoic acid}\\(d)\;\text{3-hydroxypentanoic acid,styrene}\end{array}$

1 Answer

Poly-$\beta$-hydroxybutyrate -CO-$\beta$-hydroxy valerate (PHBV) is copolymer of 3-hydroxybutanoic acid and 3-hydroxybutanoic acid and 3-hydroxypentanoic acid,in which the monomer units are joined by ester linkages.
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
