 IUPAC nomenclature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
IUPAC nomenclature is a systematic way of naming organic chemical compounds as recommended by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).
In IUPAC nomenclature, a number of prefixes, suffixes and infixes are used to describe the type and position of functional groups in the compound.
The IUPAC nomenclature scheme becomes rapidly more elaborate for more complex cyclic structures, with notation for compounds containing conjoined rings, and many common names such as phenol, furan, indole, etc. being accepted as base names for compounds derived from them.

The mission of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) is to advance the worldwide aspects of the chemical sciences and to contribute to the application of chemistry in the service of humankind.
It is not difficult to argue that IUPAC has neglected, if not turned its back on, one of its potentially most important constituencies: the international community of chemists affiliated with the union.
IUPAC needs the widest possible support and engagement of the global community of chemists to achieve its aims, in the same way that chemists need the support of their international union to develop and maintain the standards, values, and ethics of chemistry and to promote the public's appreciation of the science.

 Element 106 name change being reconsidered   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Last fall, the IUPAC nomenclature committee stunned the scientific community by rejecting the names proposed for elements 104 to 108 by their discoverers and submitting their own names instead (see Currents, Oct. 14, 1994).
According to the CandEN report, the IUPAC executive committee has bowed to the pressure and is now recommending that the IUPAC names be reverted back to a "provisional" status.
If the names of 106 and the other transuranium elements in question are submitted for public debate, chemists will have five months to submit their comments through one of 19 centers around the world.

 Articles: Elementary, my dear IUPAC
That’s because the rules, laid down by IUPAC (the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, based in Oxford) say that no chemical element may be named for a living person.
The last proposal from IUPAC was presented to its annual conference in 1994 but could not be agreed; a new round of consultation based on a revised list of names finished at the end of May 1996 and it is hoped to announce the results at the 1997 General Assembly.
The strangest part of this whole dispute is that in some cases only a single atom of the element has ever been identified, and that all the atoms have in any case long since decayed—the longest half life of any of them is 70 seconds.

To address the problem, IUPAC should encourage and facilitate the coordination of the variety of initiatives proposed, with a view to enhancing the importance of chemical education at all levels, and to utilize younger chemists to promote the subject and its achievements.
It is recommended that IUPAC collaborate with industry, trade associations, learned societies and academe to discuss how best to achieve these aims.
The discussion of the proposal made it clear that Council was not approving an unlimited expenditure, but rather that the amount to be spent on this effort would be determined by the Executive Committee.

 Periodic table group
There is considerable confusion surrounding the two old systems in use (old IUPAC and CAS) that combined the use of Roman numerals with letters.
In the old IUPAC system the letters A and B were designated to the left (A) and right (b) part of the table, while in the CAS system the letters A and B were designated to main group elements (A) and transition elements (B).
The new IUPAC scheme was developed to replace both systems as they confusingly used the same names to mean different things.
