The universal adoption of an agreed nomenclature has never been more important for the description of chemical structures in publishing and online searching. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) make similar recommendations. The main points are shown here with references to original documents. Further details can be found in the IUPAC Purple Book.

A Primer on Polymer Nomenclature: Structure-Based, Sourced-Based, and Trade Names
Polymer nomenclature is important because it is part of the language of polymer science and is needed for polymer identification, reference, and documentation. A primer on polymer nomenclature is
Nomenclature and terminology for linear lactic acid-based polymers (IUPAC Recommendations 2019)
Abstract Lactic acid enantiomers and cyclic lactic acid dimers, the latter referred to as lactides, are sources of degradable aliphatic polymers that are composed of chiral constitutional repeating
The Contribution of IUPAC to Polymer Science Education
Polymer education relies on generally agreed terminology and nomenclature rules. The Polymer Division of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) generates and recommends such
