#10. Honorificabilitudinitatibus

n.
the state of being able to achieve honors. The longest word Shakespeare ever used and the longest word in the English language with alternating consonants and vowels.
27 letters

#9. Antidisestablishmentarianism

28 letters

#8. Floccinaucinihilipilification

n.
the estimation of something as valueless.
One letter more than antidisestablishmentarianism, and just as big of a mouthful, it is a valid dictionary entry with a usefulness that is much greater than anything it might be placed beside contextually. 29 letter

#7. Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism

n.
an incomplete form of pseudohypoparathyroidism marked by the same constitutional features but by normal levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood serum.
30 letters

#6. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

This 34-letter word, which was coined by song-writers Richard and Robert Sherman in the musical film Mary Poppins, is completely made-up, the sum of word parts that don't even follow proper prefix/suffix placement protocol; the "-istic" following "fragil-" is a suffix, which should signify a word's end. However, it is followed by the prefix "ex-," where a new, separate word should begin.

#5. Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

Found in Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary, 8th edition. It is "a pneumoconiosis caused by the inhalation of very fine silicate or quartz dust". It occurs especially in miners.
45 letters

#4. Aequeosalinocalcalinoceraceoaluminosocupreovitriolic

This 52-letter word was engendered by Dr. Edward Strother in order to describe spa waters of Bath, England in a single word.
The sum of individually-meaningful parts, the word altogether means roughly, "equally salty, calcium-rich, waxy, containing aluminum and copper, and vitriolic."
Of course this word has very few applications elsewhere. Unless maybe you were talking about some kind of 9V-battery-powered robotic chicken wing.

#1. [Titin's Chemical Name]

It is a derivation of the chemical components that comprise the protein; abridged, the word is "Methionylthreonylthreonyl...isoleucine," really not worth seeing sprawled-out if for a single-purpose novelty (the only real purpose a chemical name could possibly serve).
