The identification of the substances by its IUPAC name (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) is a common practice throughout the world and forms the basis of its identification in the international and multilingual context.
The Red Book’s Nomenclature in Inorganic Chemistry were published by IUPAC for the first time in 1958. It was updated in 1990 and again in 2005; the edition now translated into Portuguese introduced new and more systematic recommendations, consistent with the principles of nomenclature in organic chemistry.
