Help – Index of Common Names

Use the navigation buttons just below the title to display (in the left-hand frame) a list of names that begin with a particular letter. For example, click the “Q” button to see the names that begin with that letter.

Scroll down the left-hand frame until you find the name that you want, and then click it to display its data sheet in the main frame.

Spaces, hyphens and other punctuation marks are ignored when determining the order in which names should be sorted. Names that include prefixes are included twice, once under the first character, and once under the first character of the significant part of the name. For example, “p-dichlorobenzene” can be found under P and under D, and “2,4-D” can be found under D and with the numerical entries at the bottom of the list.
