Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Kenneth Grima: According to the L-Akkademja tal-Malti regulations, the MRU is wrong. Hence one has to refer to Aquilina's Official dictionary which gives the following translations: ammonju; piridinjometil; piroglutamiku

  -> There again one would have to decide whether to stick to the European standard as a universal directive, or not

disagree  Christopher Farrugia: As a scientist, I agree with Kenneth Grima. If it was for the MRU, Maltese terms like aluminju would not even exist!
