Chemical nomenclature has attracted attention since the
beginning of chemistry, when the need to exchange knowledge was first
recognised. The responsibility for providing nomenclature to the chemical
community was assigned to the International Union of Pure and Applied
Chemistry, whose Rules for Inorganic Nomenclature were published and
revised in 1958 and 1970.
Since then many new compounds have appeared, particularly
with regard to coordination chemistry and boron chemistry, which were
difficult to name using the 1970 Rules. Consequently, the IUPAC Commission
on the Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry decided to thoroughly revise
the last edition of the 'Red Book'. As many
of the new fields of chemistry are very highly specialised and require
complex nomenclature, the revised edition is in two parts.
Whilst Part I is mainly concerned with general inorganic
chemistry, this volume, Part II, addresses such diverse chemistry
as polyanions, isotopic modification, tetrapyrroles, nitrogen hydrides,
inorganic ring, chain, polymer, and graphite intercalation compounds.
The recommendations bring order to the nomenclature of these specialised
systems, based on the fundamental nomenclature described in Part I and
the organic nomenclature publications. Each chapter has been subject
to extensive review by members of IUPAC and practising chemists in various
Polyanions; Isotopically Modified Inorganic Compounds; Metal Complexes
of Tetrapyrroles; Hydrides of Nitrogen and Derived Cations, Anions and
Ligands; Inorganic Chain and Ring Compounds; Graphite Intercalation
Compounds; Regular Single-Strand and Quasi Single-Strand Inorganic Coordination
Polymers; Subject Index.
