Title: Green Book - Abridged Version

Task Group
: Roberto Marquardt

Members: Chris Brett, Tom Cvitas, Jeremy Frey, Robert Hinde, Bertil Holmstroem, Yutaka Kuroda, Franco Pavese, Martin Quack, Sean Smith, Juergen Stohner, and Anders Thor

To provide an abridged student version of the 3rd edition of the IUPAC Green Book (Quantities, Units and Symbols in Physical Chemistry) suitable for University teaching, and continuing education in an industrial context. The book will consist of 40-50 pages, which will be made available both as printed material and via the web together with appropriate tutorial examples and exercises.

The project will create a new version of the 3rd Edition of the Green Book suitable for students and continuing education. The project aims to offer learning support of the typical contents of physical chemistry at the University level by restricting the range of topics covered in the Green Book (3rd Ed), to the main topics that are important for students, i.e. General Chemistry, Thermodynamics, Kinetics, Spectroscopy and Basic Physics. The 'light' version will focus on examples of the best practice in the use of terminology, quantities, units and their symbols. To determine the best content suitable for teaching purposes the project will consult with the Committee on Chemistry Education (CCE) and teaching organizations.
