CHAPTER 29

ORGANIC CHEMICALS

General

The letters (INN) after a name appearing in the combined nomenclature and the Explanatory Notes thereto indicate that the name is
included in the list of International non-proprietary names for pharmaceutical substances published by the World Health Organization.

The letters (INNM) indicate that the name is accepted by the World Health Organization as an ‘International non-proprietary name (modi-
fied)’.

The letters (ISO) indicate that the name appears as one of the ‘common names for pest control chemicals and plant growth regulators’ in
recommendation R 1750 of the International Organization for Standardization.

A fused system is one in which there are at least two rings which have one, and only one, common bond and have two, and only two atoms
in common.

are not considered to be glycosides.
The most common naturally-occurring glycosides are the O-glycosides. However, there are also naturally-occuring
N-glycosides, S-glycosides and C-glycosides, in which the sugar’s anomeric carbon is linked to the aglycone via a nitrogen
atom, a sulphur atom or a carbon atom (e.g., sinigrin, aloin, scoparin).
