About the book
For the first time, chemists, biochemists, pharmacologists, scientists at all levels in both academia and industry, legal and patent experts, editors, and software developers can rely on a user-friendly book which contains all that is required for the construction or interpretation of systematic names of organic, organometallic, or coordination compounds of any complexity:
Logic and coherent structure and organization of the material according to the procedure of naming, based on the Chemical-Abstracts nomenclature guidelines, with IUPAC recommendations and many trivial names.
Construction of the names of all compound classes illustrated by colors, especially also of radicals, ions, and organometallic and coordination compounds.
Collection of the stereoparent names of the alkaloids, amino acids, peptides, carbohydrates, cyclitols, nucleosides, nucleotides, nucleic acids, steroids, terpenes, carotenoids, retinoids, vitamins, and porphyrins as well as guidelines for the naming of polymers and isotopically modified compounds.
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.
