Asymmetric polymerization has been of interest to many academic and industrial polymer scientists, but no reference has been made by IUPAC explicitly to classification and definitions of reactions involving the asymmetric synthesis of polymers. This document presents definitions concerned with asymmetric and related polymerizations, with examples included to clarify the meaning of the definitions. Asymmetric polymerizations embrace two main categories, "asymmetric chirogenic polymerizations" and "asymmetric enantiomer-differentiating polymerizations".
