Capitalization Rules in Chemical Nomenclature Chemical names are not capitalized unless they are the first word of a sentence or part of a title or heading. The first letter of the syllabic portion of the name is capitalized. Do NOT capitalize chemical names in the middle of sentences. Ex. The elements carbon, nitrogen, and hydrogen are found abundantly in nature.

Polymers are generally one or two words in parentheses following the prefix “poly”. In text, keep polymer names lowercase. As the first word of a sentence and in titles or headings, capitalize only the first letter (“P”). Use parentheses for specific polymers.
