The term polydispersity (or more recently dispersity without the poly, as per IUPAC recommendation) is used to describe the degree of “non-uniformity” of a distribution.  In the field of molecular/nanoparticular characterization there are in principle two different definitions of polydispersity, depending on the underlying property of interest. In gel permeation chromatography (GPC) and size exclusion [...]
