The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) celebrates in 2019 the 100th anniversary. IUPAC notes that marking Mendeleev's achievement will show how the periodic table is central to connecting cultural, economic, and political dimensions of global society “through a common language” . For a common language in mitochondrial physiology and bioenergetics, the IUPAC Green book  is a most valuable resource, which unfortunately remains largely neglected in bioenergetics textbooks, and remains a challenge for integrateing open systems and non-equilibrium thermodynamic approaches [3,4].
