English term or phrase: styrene
styrene/maleic acid copolymers
Sophie Dubillot
styrolène/ copolymères d'acide maléique
Explanation:
I'm not a chemist, but I think that my answer should be correct. "Maleic acid"= "acide maléique": "acide de formule CO2H-CH=CH-CO2H qui entre dans la composition de certaines matières plastiques.
"Copolymer" = "copolymère", (m),: "macromolécule obtenue par polymérisation d'un mélange de monomères." I took my definitions from Hachette.
Very best regards,
Andréa

Explanation:
"Styrene" ="le styrolène" in French.
"Styrene" used as an adjective is "styrolénique".- page 339, Patterson's French/English Dictionary for Chemists. I'm not sure about "maleic acid copolymers". I'll try to find out.
Best regards,
Andréa
