Many compounds have two or more names correctly formed in accordance with more than one of the methods documented in this book for the same structure. In such cases, this chapter selects the one name that is to be the IUPAC preferred name (PIN). Topics discussed include: (1) selecting the preferred type of IUPAC nomenclature; (2) selecting preferred retained names, preferred systematic names, and preselected names for parent hydrides; (3) selecting the preferred method for modifying the degree of hydrogenation of parent hydrides; (4) selecting the preferred retained name for functional parent compounds; (5) selecting the preferred suffix for the principal characteristic groups; (6) selecting preferred and preselected prefixes for substituent groups. Construction of different types of names is illustrated.
