The word Polymascotfoamalate is a [[Portmanteau]] of "[[Wiktionary:poly-|poly-]]", "[[Wikipedia:mascot|mascot]]", "[[Wikipedia:foam|foam]]", and "[[Wikipedia:Ate_(disambiguation)|-ate]]".

It may be a parody of [[Wikipedia:asbestos|asbestos]], a substance used in building construction for decades due to its being fireproof until it was discovered to be a carcinogen.

The chemical notation of the material is <math>(\mbox{Ms}^{\mbox{ct}-})+(\mbox{Fm}^{8+})</math>, a manipulation of chemical symbols to resemble the words "Mascot Foamalate."

The formula <math>(\mbox{Ms}^{\mbox{ct}-})+(\mbox{Fm}^{8+})</math> indicates an [[wikipedia:ionic bond|ionic bond]] between two [[wikipedia:molecular compound|compounds]] which makes a [[wikipedia:formula unit|formula unit]]. The parentheses around the elements make them polyatomic ions (a possible reference to the name). For many reasons, this formula does not define a compound that could possibly exist in the physical universe:
 
-
*Ionic bonding only occurs when an element with a positive valence electron and an element with a negative valence electron are combined. The only polyatomic cations are ammonium, mercury(I), pyridnium, pyrylium, sulfonium, uranyl, vanadyl, pervanadyl, dioxygenyl, chromyl, and hydronium.
 
-
*The formula also shows that the chemical Ms has a valence electron number of ct, which can't be true because ct isn't a number.
 
-
*When denoting valence electrons, the positive or negative sign goes before the number.
 
-
*Finally, if this ionic bond was "real", the chemical compound formed would be (Ms)8(Fm)ct, although the suffix -ate in the name suggests that the molecule has three or four oxygen atoms.
 
-
 
-
The element Fm appears to be a noble gas, as it has a valence electron of eight. If this chemical bond is correct, Ms would have to be a metal because it is positive, and Fm would have to be a non metal because it is negative.

-
"Fm" is the chemical symbol for [[Wikipedia:Fermium|fermium]], a radioactive element with a very high atomic weight.
