Polystyrene comes in three forms: Syndiatactic, Atactic and Isotactic. They consist of long hydrocarbon chains, with a phenyl group connected to every other carbon atom.
The Syndiatactic form is highly regular and crystalline. Atactic polystyrene is irregular and amorphous (disordered) and the Isotactic form is semi-crystaline.
