Aliphatic polyester monomer, caprolactone

Ring-opening polymerization of this cyclic ester monomer
gives a useful aliphatic A-B polyester, polycaprolactone.

Aliphatic polyesters are synthetic ester-linked polymers (like PET)
but with flexible aliphatic segments that give low Tg and good organic solubility.
Here we see the 3D structure of the monomer for polycaprolactam.
