series, written by Jeffery Leigh, provides short notes and briefs about Principles of Chemical Nomenclature. Each column addresses a specific topic such as systematic nomenclature, the constructing of names, or the use of abbreviations.Questions, suggestions, and reactions (critical or complimentary) are welcome: [email protected].
- Vol. 35, No. 6, Nov-Dec 2013: Use of Abbreviations, Enclosing Marks, and Line-Breaks
PS: The Nov-Dec 2013 Note constitutes the last in this series. The CI managing editor and production editor want to thank Professor Leigh and acknowledge his contributions. Over the last two years, his spontaneous submissions have also contributed to a prompt CI production rhythm. In addition to the educational value of each piece, the series provides a model that is now being considered for other IUPAC references.
