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.
