p-Methyltyrene or PMS

Monomer for addition polymer, poly(p-methylstyrene)

Polystyrene is one of the most widely used synthetic polymers in the world.

The monomer for that polymer is simply unsubstituted styrene.

The para-methyl substituent shown here modifies the monomer and polymer properties marginally

but not enough for this monomer and its polymer to make significant commercial inroads.
