General chemistry Trivial names of substances
Good time, I'm interested in your opinion, is the use of trivial names of substances along with international ones justified? Doesn't this lead to confusion, wouldn't it be easier to use only one nomenclature in practice. What do you think about this
It is better to use one. I usually use as trivial names of chemicals as possible, this is very convenient. Naturally, as you can guess, if there is such a name for this substance.
@damiryagudin why, for example, not always use only systematic names, for example, for carboxylic acids, aldehydes, alkenes, and the like, if they are not very long?
You can't use IUPAC for day to day use. All labs have their own names for the most complicated compounds
@chaoticgood In my opinion, for most, it is just what you need. if a substance is called something within one laboratory, understanding will be difficult for other laboratories and researchers
I can say for sure that trivial names are quite often used in industry, and, accordingly, for laboratories, too, as mentioned above.
But trivial names are often applied to well-studied substances and have long been familiar, before the appearance of the IUPAC nomenclature.
