...are all English words formed by chaining a string of distinct, standard chemical symbols.

A $19$ character example is IrReCoNCILaBiLiTiEs.

Can you find two examples with more characters? (...or can one of you still find more than two?!)

Note: this very similar question was popular but got closed as too broad, so I have attempted to narrow it to a single solution puzzle.

  • $\begingroup$ @AJ the symbols used must be distinct $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Allan Aug 3 '16 at 4:44

Well, if I read correctly, one of the other answer still counts here :

H Y P Er Co N Sc I O U Sn Es Se S (20 letters)

H Y P Er Co Ag U La Bi Li Ti Es (20 letters)

Credit to @slv for the answer on the other puzzle.

  • $\begingroup$ Shouldn't the first one be hyper-consciousness? Why the extra "Es"? $\endgroup$ – Sid Aug 3 '16 at 5:40
  • $\begingroup$ @Sid It's the plural form! $\endgroup$ – IAmInPLS Aug 3 '16 at 5:41
