From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of well-known organic compounds, including organometallic compounds, to stimulate the creation of Wikipedia articles. Note that purely inorganic compounds, minerals, and chemical elements are not included on this list. There are also no generic terms (e.g., carbohydrate) or mixtures of no fixed composition (e.g., naphtha, gasoline). Compounds and enzymes that are overwhelmingly of interest to biochemists, such as Cytochrome c peroxidase, are listed under list of biomolecules.

For substances with a number prefix such as 2-Butanol or 1,3-Cyclohexadiene, use the first letter of the name (in this case under B or C) to find the compound. Such names usually have the first letter capitalized in a title or at the beginning of a sentence.

Whilst most compounds are referred to by their IUPAC name, "traditional" names have also been kept where they are in wide use or of significant historical interest.

L

For substances with an l- or L- prefix such as L-alanine or DL-alanine, please see the parent page (in this case alanine).

M

For substances with an m- or meta- prefix such as m-cresol, meta-cresol or metacresol that are not listed below, please look for a more generic page (in this case cresol). For substances with a meso- prefix such as meso-tartaric acid or mesotartaric acid that are not listed below, please see the parent page (in this case tartaric acid).

N

For substances with an n- or normal- prefix such as n-pentane that are not listed below, please see the parent page (in this case pentane).

For substances with an N- prefix (meaning on nitrogen) such as N,N-dimethylformamide, if these are not listed below please see the parent page (in this case dimethylformamide).

O

For substances with an o- or ortho- prefix such as o-cresol, ortho-cresol or orthocresol that are not listed below, please look for a more generic page (in this case cresol).

P

For substances with an p- or para- prefix such as p-cresol, para-cresol or paracresol that are not listed below, please look for a more generic page (in this case cresol).

Q

R

S

For substances with an s- or secondary- prefix such as s-butyllithium or sec-butyllithium that are not listed below, please see the parent page (in this case under B, butyllithium).

T

For substances with an t- or tertiary- prefix such as t-butyllithium or tert-butyllithium that are not listed below, please see the parent page (in this case under B, butyllithium). For substances with an t- or trans- prefix such as *trans-2-Butene, you may find these listed under the parent name letter (in this case "B"), as is the norm in chemical catalogues.
