I'm conducting a small poll over at FriendFeed about abbreviations of chemical names. If you have a opinion about which abbreviation is better in the following cases, please leave your feedback (either on FriendFeed or in the comments here):
- 10-formyltetrahydrofolate: "10-formyltetra." or "10-formyl-THF"?
- acetyl-L-carnitine: "acetyl-L-carni." or "ALCAR"?
- dihydrotestosterone: "androstanolone" or "dihydrotestost."?
