Guide for Authors of Papers and Reports in Polymer Science and Technology
Polymer chemistry is advancing rapidly as major improvements in polymer synthesis make an impact. Some of the most far-reaching advances have come from “living” free radical polymerization and from the introduction of dendrimers. This means many polymers can now be prepared with high precision for specific applications. Clearly, these advances necessitate a method for describing the polymers precisely. Thus, nomenclature needs to develop in parallel with synthetic advances. IUPAC task groups have been actively pursuing this goal. This project aims to revise and to bring up to date the IUPAC Recommendations on Macromolecular Nomenclature, which are the first resource for authors of papers and reports in polymer science and technology.
