A Brief Guide to Polymer Nomenclature (Polymer Naming)

This basic guide covers most of the common polymers. It carries colour-coded hyperlinks to free IUPAC reference material, which can be used to further clarify the names and find out how to apply IUPAC rules to more complex polymers.  > project 2008-032-1-400
