Terminology of polymers containing ionizable or ionic groups and of polymers containing ions (IUPAC Recommendations 2006)
This document defines the terms most commonly encountered in the field of polymers containing ionizable or ionic groups and polymers containing ions. The scope of the document has been limited to organic polymers. Inorganic materials, such as certain phosphates, silicates, etc., which also may be considered ionic polymers, are excluded from the present document.
The terms selected are those that are widely used in the field of polymers containing ionizable or ionic groups and polymers containing ions. Only those terms that could be defined without ambiguity are considered.
The terms are listed in alphabetical order, and cross-references to definitions given in other documents are provided.
