Brief guide to the nomenclature of organic chemistry (IUPAC Technical Report)
Abstract This IUPAC Technical Report is one of a series that seeks to distil the essentials of IUPAC nomenclature recommendations. The present report provides a succinct summary of material presented
The past, present, and future in the nomenclature and structure representation of inorganic compounds.
The origins and development of the compositional nomenclature and additive nomenClature that have been at the heart of formal descriptions of inorganic compounds since the times of Lavoisier and Werner are examined.
What's in a Name?—A Short History of Coordination Chemistry from Then to Now
This article traces the development of coordination chemistry and shows how progress in the science has been paralleled by the development of a vocabulary and nomenclature to describe new concepts,
The Coordination Chemistry of Bio-Relevant Ligands and Their Magnesium Complexes
The aim of this review is to comprehensively describe what is currently known about common bio-relevant magnesium complexes from the perspective of coordination chemistry.
Enthalpy-Controlled Insertion of a "Nonspectator" Tricoordinate Phosphorus Ligand into Group 10 Transition Metal-Carbon Bonds.
Metalation of a P^P-chelating ligand with group 10 complexes results in insertion of the nontrigonal phosphorus site into the metal-methyl bond, and the stable methylmetallophosphorane compounds thus formed are characterized spectroscopically and crystallographically.
Specificities and origins of the Slovak nomenclature of inorganic chemistry
Nowadays the discussion on the symbiosis of the international and national nomenclature systems in different areas of science provides clear evidences that full implementation of conventional
Insertion of a Nontrigonal Phosphorus Ligand into a Transition Metal-Hydride: Direct Access to a Metallohydrophosphorane.
The synthesis and reactivity of an NPN-chelating ligand containing a nontrigonal phosphorous triamide center (L1 = P(N( o-N(2-pyridyl)C6H4)2) is reported. Metalation of L1 with RuCl2(PPh3)3 gives
What is an organic substance?
No exact definition of an “organic” substance has been agreed upon by the chemical community and textbook definitions vary substantially. The question of what exactly constitutes an “organic”
Bifurcated Halogen Bonding Involving Diaryliodonium Cations as Iodine(III)-Based Double-σ-Hole Donors
Three diaryliodonium tetrachloroaurates(III), [Ar1IAr2][AuCl4] (Ar1/Ar2 = Ph/Ph (1), Ph/Mes (2), o-(C6H4)2 (3)), were obtained as solids (62–80%) by the metathetical reaction of [Ar1IAr2](CF3CO2) a...
Synthesis and Chemical and Biological Evaluation of a Glycine Tripeptide Chelate of Magnesium
The synthesis, chemical and physical characterization, and cellular uptake of a magnesium triglycine chelate (MgG3), an octahedral complex with extraordinary water solubility and improved cellular uptake in CaCo-2 cells than select commonly used magnesium supplements are discussed.


A brief guide to polymer nomenclature (IUPAC Technical Report)
The universal adoption of an agreed nomenclature has never been more important for the description of chemical structures in publishing and online searching. The International Union of Pure and
Basic Principles of the CIP-System and Proposals for a Revision†
“From Configurational Notation of Stereoisomers to the Conceptual Basis of Stereochemistry” is the title of a lecture [V. Prelog, ACS Symp. Ser. No. 12 (1975) 179] in which the chronologically and
Specification of Molecular Chirality
The topological analysis of chiral molecular models has provided the framework of a general system for the specification of their chirality. The application, made in and before 1956, of this system
Graphical representation standards for chemical structure diagrams (IUPAC Recommendations 2008)
The purpose of a chemical structure diagram is to convey information - typically the identity of a molecule - to another human reader or as input to a computer program. Any form of communication,
