un polimero;

alfametilstirene esiste in italiano, pur essendo poco usato, ma con "poli" non ho trovato nulla mentre in Inglese esiste, quindi probabilmente sono fuori strada..

Google gives 48 occurrences of poly(alpha-methyl)styrene. Considering the number of persons throughout the world writing in English, I would say that isn\'t much and wouldn\'t find it surprising that the corresponding number of occurrences in Italian is....zero. There aren\'t any in French either for the various possible orthographic variants: poly(alpha-methyl)styrene
poly(alpha-methyl) styrene
poly (alpha-methyl) styrene
etc.
