Nowadays, the development of alternatives to petroleum based - natural based polymeric materials were grow rapidly due to contemporary challenge attributable to environmental concerns and the effects of fluctuating oil prices.Triglycerides, the primary components of vegetable oils, are an abundant, renewable, and widely investigated as the alternative feedstock for polymeric materials [1], In this study, 3 types of cooking oil was used such as, Virgin Oil (VO), ‘Popia’ Oil (PO), and Mixed Oil (MO) for the synthesis of bio-monomer named as Virgin Oil Monomer (VOM), Popia Oil Monomer (POM) and Mixed Oil Monomer (MOM). These bio-monomers then converted to the bio-polymers named as Virgin Oil Polymer (VOP), Popia Oil Polymer (POP) and Mixed Oil Polymer (MOP). The spectroscopic properties of oils, bio-monomers and bio-polymers were tested using Fourier
