Abstract

In a recent Viewpoint (ACS Macro Lett. 2014, 3, 1020), J.-F. Lutz brought to the community's attention the need for more informative nomenclature, especially with respect to macromolecules with prescribed but not repeating sequences of monomers. Lutz proposes the use of the term "aperiodic" for this situation. In this Viewpoint, we comment on the need for such nomenclature and offer some alternatives for consideration.
