Creation of a standard nomenclature system for threaded macrocyclic
molecules known as rotaxanes.
There are currently no standards for nomenclature of macromolecular
rotaxanes. This field of polymers has been of intense interest to the
scientific community for the last 15 years. Standardisation of nomenclature
in this field is highly desirable and long overdue.
Comments generated at the Warsaw 2000 meeting, were incorporated;
progress reviewed at the GA in Brisbane (July 2001); final acceptance
anticipated for 2003.
