Longest word with no repeats

What's the longest word you can think of that doesn't use any letters more than once? Brains only today, googling allowed tomorrow.

My best so far:
unthreads
questions
comparing

9 letters

Big Bird sings about this great word:

Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

All 26 letters! You'll have to go to another alphabet to beat that one!
