Multilingual Polymer Glossary

The Multilingual Polymer Glossary contains translations of terms of polymer science and their definitions in several languages. It is based on the “Glossary of Basic Terms in Polymer Science”, which is one of the chapters of the “Compendium of Polymer Terminology and Nomenclature”, known as Purple Book, published by IUPAC through the Royal Society of Chemistry. This electronic version was launched in 2012 with translations into just seven languages. Since then the Subcommittee on Polymer Education is making efforts to expand the range of translations into other languages.
