Provisional Recommendations

Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry

A major new principle is elaborated in these recommendations. The concept of “preferred IUPAC names” is developed and systematically applied. However, rather than recommend only a single “unique name” for each structure, we have developed rules for assigning “preferred IUPAC names,” while continuing to allow alternatives in order to preserve the diversity and adaptability of the nomenclature to daily activities in chemistry and in science in general.

This book covers and extends the principles, rules and conventions described in two former publications: Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry, 1979 Edition, and A Guide to IUPAC Nomenclature of Organic Compounds, Recommendations 1993.
