Systematic Nomenclature of Organic, Organometallic and Coordination Chemistry

Ursula Bünzli-Trepp
EPFL Press: Lausanne, Switzerland (distributed by CRC Press), 2007
ISBN: 978-2-940222-13-1

For the first time, chemists, biochemists, pharmacologists, scientists, editors, and software developers can rely on a user-friendly book containing everything required for constructing or interpreting systematic names of organic, organometallic, or coordination compounds, and more complicated molecules. The book covers naming procedures (based on the Chemical-Abstracts nomenclature guidelines), IUPAC recommendations, and many trivial names. Specifically, the book include the following:

  • detailed descriptions of the names of molecular-skeleton parents, including an illustrative procedure for the naming of fused polycycles
  • construction of the names of all compound classes illustrated by colors, with an emphasis on radicals, ions, and organometallic and coordination compounds
  • collection of the stereoparent names of the alkaloids, amino acids, peptides, carbohydrates, cylitols, nucleosides, nucleotides, nucleic acids, steroids, terpenes, carotenoides, retinoids, vitamins, and porphyrins, as well as guidelines for the naming of polymers and isotopically modified compounds
  • for the first time, detailed instructions for the citation of indicated H atom (indicated hydrogen) in names
  • comprehensive description of the Cahn-Ingold-Prelog system for the specification of configuration and of the thus derived stereodescriptors for names of chiral organic, organometallic, and coordination compounds, including instructions concerning the stereodescriptors used by Chemical Abstracts until 1999
  • over 6 000 drawings of compounds with names from practice, about 2 700 in color
