Not tectonically the longest word because it's a chemical name but:

For long protein-sequences you go for letters, but if you want a long name...
Someone synthesised Brevetoxin B (well actually it was K C Nicalou), that's one of those top-rated >4.5 Instructables achievements. But try naming it...

typically when entering the "long word" competition it can't be a technical term, it can't be a coined term and it actually has to be in english (i.e. not latin)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longest_word_in_English

the long held notion of antidisestablishmentarianism as being the longest word is still up there given that it's got no challenges based on the previously mentioned stipulations.

what about antiantidisestablishmentarianism? or being against antidisestablishmentarianism? one could argue that that just means you're a disestablishmentarian, but what if you're neither for nor against disestablishmentarianism but you're explicitely against being against it?

There was that really long word that was used to name some chemical.  I saw it on the back of a dictionary, it took up the entire page.

(chemical) IUPAC naming is a bit like Lego or K'NEX - you can build a really-long word if you're describing something complex. It's a logical description of the bits and the way they're arranged.
