The lexis of chemistry registered an important change from the final quarter of the C.18. The translation of the Nueva nomenclatura química («New Chemical Nomenclature») brought in its wake the arrival of new terms to the Spanish language. Bearing in mind the latest data provided from the history of science, this study explains and exemplifies the tension within the lexical system created by the arrival of the new terms.
