Unfortunately, not yet.  There is code that almost does that, but not quite.  
That code creates a TimeOfDay from a String: "ChronosParser default 
nextTimeOfDayFrom: '23:59:59' readStream."  

I will be releasing a new version of Chronos that will implement parsing for 
ScientificDurations and CivilDurations. At least initially, I will probably 
only support the ANSI format for ScientificDurations ("202:14:07:22.105538") 
and the ISO8601 format for CivilDurations ("202d14h7m22.105538s".)
