Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry, commonly referred to by chemists as the Blue Book, is a collection of recommendations on organic chemical nomenclature published at irregular intervals by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). A full edition was published in 1979,[1] an abridged and updated version of which was published in 1993 as A Guide to IUPAC Nomenclature of Organic Compounds.[2] Both of these are now out-of-print in their paper versions, but are available free of charge in electronic versions. After the release of a draft version for public comment in 2004[3] and the publication of several revised sections in the journal Pure and Applied Chemistry, a fully revised version was published in print in 2013.[4]
