- An ion-exchange polymer in ionized form may also be referred to as a polyanion or a polycation.
- Synthetic ion-exchange organic polymers are often @[email protected] polyelectrolytes.
- A @[email protected] having ion-exchange groups is called an ion-exchange membrane.
- Use of the term 'ion-exchange @[email protected]' for 'ion-exchange polymer' is strongly discouraged.
