meso structures

in polymers
Relative configurations of consecutive, but not necessarily contiguous, constitutionally equivalent carbon atoms that have a symmetrically-constituted connecting group (if any) are designated 'meso' or 'racemo', as appropriate. Examples:
M03856-1
(The symbol M03856-2 represents a symmetrically-constituted connecting group, such as –CH2, –CH2–CH2, or –CR2–CH2–CR2.)
