A Brief Guide to Polymer Nomenclature

R. C. Hiorns, et al
Pure and Applied Chemistry, 2012
Vol. 84, No. 10, pp. 2167-2169

The "Brief Guide" gives a simple résumé of polymer nomenclature. It was prepared with the objective of disseminating throughout the international polymer community a short, easily assimilated, guide to the essentials of polymer nomenclature.

The two-page document is targeted at authors publishing in polymer-science journals, lecturers, students, indeed anyone who would like to know how polymers are named in accordance with IUPAC recommendations.

The "Brief Guide" includes:
important terminology for polymer nomenclature;
concise explanations of source-based and structure-based nomenclature; and hyperlinks to relevant primary publications.
