Welcome to our IUPAC name generator! If you landed on this webpage, you are probably aware what IUPAC is. However, here is some information for those who followed the link exactly to find out what stands behind this strange combination of letters: IUPAC is an abbreviation for International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, an international federation that represents chemists from different countries all over the world. The IUPAC was established in the first half of 2th century and currently has headquarters in Switzerland.
In order to come up with the IUPAC name for some sort of compound you have to follow variety of rules. For example, to create a title for an organic compound you first have to find out what is the number of carbons in what you have assigned to be the parent chain and then use it as the base part of the longer title. IUPAC rules also dictates that the suffix of the name has to reflect the type (or types) of functional group (in some cases, groups) present on/within the parent chain. As you can see, the exact name always depends on the structure and other features of the molecule. This IUPAC name generator was designed to provide you with some examples. It will help you to get a clearer understanding on how IUPAC names are generally created, than you can start working on the title for the particular compound. The IUPAC name generator we have developed will also come in handy for those who are writing sci-fi stories. Are you one of those authors? In that case you could use the suggestions generated by this system to make the dialogues more realistic.
Using this system is incredibly easy. All you have to do to get a new suggestion is click the button that reads “Generate IUPAC Names”. Each time you do that, the new title will appear right in front of you. If you slide down the window, you will also find two separate spaces: one titled “IUPAC Names Generated” and the other that reads “Favorite Names”. The first of these lists will simply refresh your memory, while the second of them will help you to keep track on the names that might be useful for you. All you have to do to transfer the suggestion from one section to another is click on it. Good luck using our IUPAC name generator and don’t forget to take a copy of your favorites list before you leave the website!
