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.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
