Chemical nomenclature has attracted attention since the beginning of chemistry, because the need to exchange knowledge was recognised from the early days. The responsibility for providingnomenclature to the chemical community has been assigned to the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, whose Rules for Inorganic Nomenclature have been published and revised in 1958 and 1970. Sincethen many new compounds have appeared, particularly with regard to coordination chemistry and boron chemistry, which were difficult to name from the 1970 Rules. Consequently the IUPAC Commission ofNomenclature on Inorganic Chemistry decided to thoroughly revise the last edition of the `Red Book.' Because many of the new fields of chemistry are very highly specialised and need complex types ofname, the revised edition will appear in two parts. Part 1 will be mainly concerned with general inorganic chemistry, Part 2 with more specialised areas such as strand inorganic polymers andpolyoxoanions. This new edition represents Part 1 - in it can be found rules to name compounds ranging from the simplest molecules to oxoacids and their derivatives, coordination compounds, and simple boroncompounds.
