Crystallographic nomenclature

All ten crystallographic nomenclature reports by the Commission published in Acta Crystallographica are now online at: http://www.iucr.ac.uk/iucr-top/comm/cnom/index.html.

Online availability of the nomenclature reports of the IUCr and its sister organizations is expected to ease the difficulty many working scientists have in accessing recommended nomenclature that previously was available only in print. This Webpage also provides hotlinks to the nomenclature resources of the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (Home of the SI system of units), IUPAC (International Union of Pure & Applied Chemistry), ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Technical Committee 12: Quantities, units, symbols, conversion factors, and IUPAP (International Union of Pure & Applied Physics) Commission on Symbols, Units, Nomenclature, Atomic Masses and Fundamental Constants (SUNAMCO) among others.
