During qepHom Saarbrücken 2015, 2016 and qep'a' 2016, lots of new words were revealed about chemistry terms. These include general terms, and also some names of the elements. Some of these words were first used in the Klingon Pittsburgh Art Tour, but they were first published in a list at the qepHom'a' in 2016.

Based on the word tamler element, the word for chemistry as a science is tamlerQeD, the chemist is called tamlertej.
