I've been asked to find the IUPAC name for polyvinyl acetate. when i type it in google i keep getting butan-2-yl acetate. but isn't the IUPAC name for acetate ethanoate ..?
so would the proper IUPAC name for PVA be butan-2-yl ethanoate?
I searched google and found what you found EXCEPT for this one.
I don't know about its authenticity. http://books.google.com/books?id=rka3nPiiRi4C&pg=PA386&lpg=PA386&dq=IUPAC+name+polyvinyl+acetate&source=bl&ots=YOLfXOcLLS&sig=390LQ3Gm9YdgAXQZ8zGLIb4Swig&hl=en&ei=WvGWS5u2JaWA8gaRwuw6&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=7&ved=0CBkQ6AEwBg#v=onepage&q=&f=false
