Abstract:

The rational ordering of polymers in a large data set for the correlation of glass transition temperature Tg with structure requires the establishment of seniority criteria. An extension of polymer nomenclature rules published by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry is proposed and applied, with examples, to the groups in a large polymer data set. The rules can be extended to cover new polymers without upsetting the original order.
