    Aims and Scope

    Etymology of Chemical Names gives an overview of the development of the current chemical nomenclature, tracing its sources and changing rules as chemistry progressed over the years. This book is devoted to provide a coherent picture how the trivial and systematic names shall be used and how the current IUPAC rules help to reconcile the conflicting demands.
