Chemical dictionary

Version 3 of a free chemistry spellcheck dictionary for Word and OpenOffice has been released by its creator Adam Azman. The dictionary builds on earlier versions that used ChemSpider tools by crowd-sourcing common chemical terms that were missing from previous versions and incorporating user suggestions into this latest release. The dictionary is easily added to a word processor installation and makes spellchecking a chemistry document a much simpler and speedier process especially and precludes the need to add chemical names and words on an ad hoc basis, which many chemists and scientists in general do as they work on a document. The ease of installation and portability of the free dictionary means there is now no excuse for misspelling that compound name.
