Subject: the grammar of photographic writers
Lots of snipping...
I think this may be a modern change. I was taught to capitalize the names of both elements and compounds but some practice seems to be not to capitalize the compound names, as in Sodium carbonate. If current practice in chemistry is not to capitalize chemical names that are not trade names I will follow this in the future, its a lot less trouble:-)
