## Abstract

It is known that Q-derived univariate polynomials (polynomials defined over Q, with the property that they and all their derivatives have all their roots in Q) can be completely classified subject to two conjectures: that no quartic with four distinct roots is Q-derived, and that no quintic with a triple root and two other distinct roots is Q-derived. We prove the second of these conjectures.
