New IUPAC Rules—Name Your Compounds Correctly

December 3, 2014, 9:00-9:45 AM EST (3:00-3:45 PM CET)

Understand the impact of the new IUPAC Organic Nomenclature Rules with ACD/Name

Chemistry is a rapidly developing discipline and chemical nomenclature rules cannot stand unchanged with the growing complexity of chemicals. In December 2013 the new Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry IUPAC Recommendations and Preferred Names was published. The most important change is the concept of "Preferred IUPAC Name" (PIN).

These recommendations, together with the introduction of the PIN concept, introduce several principle changes in naming procedures that will affect systematic names for many classes of organic structures. The importance of understanding nomenclature rules in addition to using software to generate a name will be discussed in this webinar. ACD/Name version 2015, to be released shortly, incorporates many of these new recommendations.

Andrey Yerin, Principle Nomenclature Software Development Specialist for ACD/Labs, will guide you through these changes with clear examples of the differences in names generated using the 'old' and 'new' rules. After this webinar you will have a clear understanding what has changed in organic nomenclature, what IUPAC PINs are, be able to apply them in your work and pass the knowledge to colleagues and students.
