or perhaps, "certain synthetics" ?
Is there such a reference, on-line or otherwise?
Given a name of a substance, one can easily find out
more about it.
I have realized I live surrounded by substances commonly
called "plastics" but have no idea what most of them
actually are, in particular the large cup "kvort" (see
link) which I found out recently is quite dramatically
flammable, unlike e.g. the microwave dishes and other
items. Fortunately, the kvort was in a big deep sink.
