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 Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) make similar recommendations. The main points are shown here with references to original documents. Further details can be found in the IUPAC Purple Book.
