Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0032521

NCI Thesaurus Code: C48803  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Biomedical or Dental Material

Semantic Type: Chemical Viewed Structurally

NCIt Definition: A substance made up of variable numbers of repeating structural units linked through covalent bonds.

NCI-GLOSS Definition: A molecule made up of small identical molecules called monomers. The monomers are joined together in a repeating pattern.

CSP Definition: compounds formed by the joining of smaller, usually repeating, units linked by covalent bonds; these compounds often form large macromolecules; for example, plastics, polypeptides, polysaccharides, and nucleic acids.

MSH Definition: Compounds formed by the joining of smaller, usually repeating, units linked by covalent bonds. These compounds often form large macromolecules (e.g., BIOPOLYMERS; PLASTICS).

NPO Definition: A polymer is a molecule of high relative molecular mass, the structure of which essentially comprises the multiple repetition of units derived, actually or conceptually, from molecules of low relative molecular mass.
