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.

Brief guide to the nomenclature of organic chemistry (IUPAC Technical Report)

Abstract This IUPAC Technical Report is one of a series that seeks to distil the essentials of IUPAC nomenclature recommendations. The present report provides a succinct summary of material presented

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

Preferred names of constitutional units for use in structure-based names of polymers (IUPAC Recommendations 2016)

Abstract A list of constitutional units (CU) used for naming polymers according to IUPAC nomenclature rules is provided. This list contains CUs of commercial and well-known polymers, as well as CUs

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

Synthesis of Main-Chain Poly(fullerene)s from a Sterically Controlled Azomethine Ylide Cycloaddition Polymerization

Fullerene is used as a monomer in this simple method to prepare soluble, well-defined polymers. The sterically controlled azomethine ylide cycloaddition polymerization of fullerene (SACAP) yields

PolDiv101: A Brief Guide to the Polymer Division

The IUPAC Polymer Division is a group of people, and here the authors all are, well, a good number of us anyway.

Determining the Mark–Houwink parameters of nitrile rubber: a chromatographic investigation of the NBR microstructure

The microstructure of acrylonitrile–butadiene rubber (NBR) was shown to be dependent on the polymerization conditions. The NBR investigated in the current study was obtained via radical
