A chemical bond or link produced by cross-linking.
a match up between adjacent stores of a polymer
a covalent bond that links two stores of atoms, or two parts of one sequence, in a polymeric molecule; the cross-link is established by a 3rd bond in a monomer product aside from the two bonds forming the polymeric sequence; -- a cross-link may be inner to a single string, in place of between two otherwise unlinked chains. Known as also cross-linkage.
a side relationship that links two adjacent chains of atoms in a complex molecule
