Are the same chemicals used in rubber and plastic?

    Some rubbers come from rubber trees and parts of plants, but some is made synthetically, which is a type of plastic.  Different types of plastic contain different types of chemicals.  There are two main types of plastics:  thermoplastics and thermosetting polymers.  Fossil fuel chemicals are commonly used in plastics, although there are ways of making them without these chemicals.
