Nomenclature of Regular Single-Strand Organic Polymers discusses the fundamental principles and the basic rules of the structure-based nomenclature. This book contains detailed extensions and applications of these principles and rules to single-strand organic polymers. An Appendix is included containing a limiting list of acceptable source-based names, along with the corresponding structure-based names, of common polymers. This book will be of value to organic chemists.

About the Author

Unknown Author

Dr. Sam Stuart is a physiotherapist and a research Fellow within the Balance Disorders Laboratory, OHSU. His work focuses on vision, cognition and gait in neurological disorders, examining how technology-based interventions influence these factors. He has published extensively in world leading clinical and engineering journals focusing on a broad range of activities such as real-world data analytics, algorithm development for wearable technology and provided expert opinion on technology for concussion assessment for robust player management. He is currently a guest editor for special issues (sports medicine and transcranial direct current stimulation for motor rehabilitation) within Physiological Measurement and Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation, respectively.
