Polietilentereftalato


Explanation:
Ahora sí, Polyethylene terephthalate es
Polietilentereftalato o PET. La respuesta de Patricia Lutteral (tereftalato de polietileno) también es válida e incluso usual. A mí no me gusta porque da una idea errónea de la estequiometría del polímero, parece que hubiera un solo tereftalato por cada polietileno, cuando en realidad la unidad que se repite contiene un tereftalato y un etileno. Hay gente que resuelve este problema con paréntesis:
poli(tereftalato de etileno) pero me parece más difícil de leer así que opto por la forma "ferrocarril" que consiste en poner los componentes todos juntos en una sola palabra después del "poli". Por cierto, la nomenclatura en química no es única y mucho menos en polímeros.

Mucha suerte. GFS.
