Glossary of Terms Related to Kinetics, Thermodynamics, and Mechanisms of Polymerization (IUPAC Recommendations 2008)

Stanisław Penczek and Graeme Moad
Pure and Applied Chemistry, 2008
Vol. 80, No. 10, pp. 2163–2193
doi:10.1351/pac200880102163

This document presents recommended definitions of basic terms related to polymerization processes. Recent developments relating to the kinetics, thermodynamics, and mechanisms of polymerization have necessitated the introduction of new terms and some revision or augmentation of terms previously defined in the Compendium of Chemical Terminology (the Gold Book), the “Glossary of Basic Terms in Polymer Science.” [PAC 68, 2287 (1996)], and the “Basic Classification and Definitions of Polymerization Reactions”[PAC 66, 2483 (1994)]. In most cases, the previously given definitions have been retained, but, in a few cases, the development of the field has required changes. Those definitions from the Gold Book and the glossary that have been changed are provided in appendices to the present document.
