Glossary of Terms Relating to Thermal and Thermomechanical Properties of Polymers (IUPAC Recommendations 2013)

Michael Hess, et al.
Pure and Applied Chemistry, 2013
Vol. 85, No. 5, pp. 1017–1046

This document gives definitions of terms related to the thermal and thermomechanical properties of polymers prior to thermal decomposition. The terms are arranged in alphabetical order and cover definitions of relevant terms from physical chemistry, polymer science, and experimental techniques. The document considers to some extent earlier reports related to the terminology of thermal analysis (e.g., those published by the International Confederation for Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry, IUPAC Recommendations covered by the Compendium of Chemical Terminology, the so-called “Gold Book”, and the second edition of the Compendium of Polymer Nomenclature and Terminology, the so-called “Purple Book”).

Other publications consulted include ISO and ASTM Standards. In addition, the recently (PAC 2011, Vol. 83, No. 10, pp. 1831-1871) published document “Definition of terms relating to crystalline polymers,” a revision of a superseded IUPAC recommendation published under the same title in 1989, has necessitated modifications of some older definitions. Thermal analysis is an extensive subject in its own right, and the reader is referred to specialized textbooks for further information.
