    Poly(cyclopropene)? I have a vague idea but I just want some confirmation...
    Have three of the points of the pentagon coming off the main chain, and the other two as part of the main chain. Hope that makes sense.

    Sorry I thought that said cyclopentane!

    I would have the two carbons in the repeat unit connected to one carbon outside of the main chain.

    You should see the pattern emerging. Basically ensure you always only have two carbon atoms across the centre of the polymer diagram with sticks going out through the brackets.

    How would you draw two repeating units?
