A polymer is broadly defined as a substance made up of many linked atoms or smaller molecules. Unlike small molecules, polymer properties can vary considerably depending on the method of synthesis, measurement technique, and experimental conditions. As such, knowing additional information about the polymer of interest can be helpful when searching for specific information. This chapter outlines some of this additional information to aid in searching primary literature, and also includes references to secondary compendia where possible.
