Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry
IUPAC Recommendations 2005

- the Red Book -

This new edition of the 'Red Book' clarifies and updates recommendations concerning the names and formulae of inorganic compounds and reflects major recent developments in inorganic chemistry. Moreover, it presents recommendations fully consistent with the principles of the nomenclature of organic chemistry. In order to choose the most appropriate of the various nomenclature systems described, a flowchart is provided to guide the reader to a section or chapter where rules can be found for a particular type of compound or species. Copious examples are supplemented by an extensive subject index.

The present book supersedes not only Red Book I but also, where appropriate, Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry II, IUPAC Recommendations 2000 (Red Book II).
