English Dictionary: polymeric by the DICT Development Group
2 results for polymeric
From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]:
  1. of or relating to or consisting of a polymer; "a polymeric compound"
From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Polymeric \Pol`y*mer"ic\, a. [Poly- + Gr. [?] part.] (Chem.)
      Having the same percentage composition (that is, having the
      same elements united in the same proportion by weight), but
      different molecular weights; -- often used with with; thus,
      cyanic acid ({CNOH}), fulminic acid ({C2N2O2H2}), and
      cyanuric acid ({C3N3O3H3}), are polymeric with each other.
      Note: The figures expressing the number of atoms of each
               element in a number of polymeric substances are
               respectively multiples and factors of each other, or
               have some simple common divisor. The relation may be
               merely a numerical one, as in the example given above,
               or a chemical one, as in the case of aldehyde,
               paraldehyde, and metaldehyde.
