Additional Corrections to

Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry: IUPAC Recommendations 2005, Royal Society of Chemistry, 2005. Edited by N G Connelly and T Damhus (with R M Hartshorn and A T Hutton) [ISBN 0-85404-438-8] and corrections already listed (in PDF format 4.13 MBt).

IR-2.7, p. 31, Ec 2: read monooxygen

IR-5.3.2.2, p. 71, Ex 12: this example belongs in IR-5.3.2.3.

IR-5.5, p. 81, line 1, correct '...and tritiate' are not...' to '...and 'tritiate' are not...'.

IR-6.2.4.5, p.101, Ex 1: change the name in (i) to octahydro[1,3,5,2,4,6]triazatriborinino[2,3-b][1,3,5,2,4,6]triazatriborinine.

IR-8.6 p.138, line 5 up, Replace 'of other functional nomenclature are also' by 'of functional class nomenclature are also'.

Table IR-8.2 p.139, should have included also the entries

NOCl, nitrosyl chloride, nitrosyl chloride, chloridooxidonitrogen
NO2Cl, nitryl chloride, nitryl chloride, chloridodioxidonitrogen

Furthermore, there should have been a footnote pointing out that just as with other binary-type names, it is acceptable to leave out multiplicative prefixes in the functional class names here if there is no ambiguity, e.g. phosphoryl chloride will in most cases be easily understood to denote phosphoryl trichloride. Also these functional class names have, of course, obvious analogues with the other halogens, e.g., phosphoryl tribromide.

Table IX p.280.

General remark: optional radical dots are sometimes shown in formulae and names, sometimes not. Some examples of this, but not all such cases, are mentioned below.

HF2, p.299, column 4: delete name 'fluorofluoranuide'.

HO3P, p.303, one could have added metaphosphoric acid, (HPO3)n, cf. Table IR-8.1, p.129.

NH, p.314, column 3: first name for NH+ must be azanyliumyl; radical dot could be included in formula and in additive name, but is optional.

N2H2, p.316, column 5: second name must be diazen-2-ium-1-ide (ligand is neutral).

N2H4, p.317, column 5: second name must be diazan-2-ium-1-ide (ligand is neutral).

O3, p.321, column 4: delete name 'trioxidanidyl'.

P2O6, p.325, formulae in columns 4 and 5, the charge should be 4–.

S3, p.330, column 5: 'trisulfanidyl' must be 'trisulfanidylo' (ligand is anionic).

Se, p.331, column 5: 'selanidyl' must be 'selanidylo' (ligand is anionic).

Te, p.334, column 5: 'tellanidyl' must be 'tellanidylo' (ligand is anionic).
