IUPAC Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry SEARCH NOTE : The most recent version of Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry. IUPAC Recommendations and Preferred Name 2013 (Blue Book) was published in December 2013. These rules supercede 1979 and 1993 recommendations.
Currently these rules are only available in the print version due to copyright: Favre, Henri A. and Powell, Warren H. Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry. IUPAC Recommendations and Preferred Name 2013 . Cambridge, UK: The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013. ISBN 978-0-85404-182-4.
It is our hope that we can publish the 2013 rules on this website once IUPAC permits reproduction of the text. Recommendations 1979 Recommendations 1993 A. Hydrocarbons Preamble B. Fundamental Heterocyclic Systems R-0 Introduction C. Characteristic Groups Containing Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen, Halogen, Sulfur, Selenium, and/or Tellurium R-1 General Principles of Organic Nomenclature List of Radical Names R-2 Parent Hydrides and their Derived Substituent Groups R-3 Characteristic (Functional) Groups R-4 Guide to Name Construction R-5 Applications to Specific Classes of Compounds R-6 Name Interpretation R-7 Stereochemical Specification R-8 Isotopically Modified Compounds R-9 Appendix This HTML reproduction of Sections A, B and C of IUPAC "Blue Book" is as close as possible to the published version [see Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry, Sections A, B, C, D, E, F, and H , Pergamon Press, Oxford, 1979.
