Chemical Nomenclature Round Table
(To view this file, leave CI and enter IUPAC Website).

Chemical nomenclature has been a major core activity of IUPAC since its inception. In order to help develop a strategy for the Union's future work in nomenclature, including advances in computer-based aspects of nomenclature, IUPAC held a Round Table discussion on "Representations of Molecular Structure: Nomenclature and Its Alternatives" in Washington, DC, on 10-11 March 2000.

Because chemistry is fun and teaching it is not always easy, Agfa-Gevaert N.V., Belgium, has developed and produced "didactic" tools such as the DIDAC overhead transparency sheets.

Pure and Applied Chemistry: The Special Topics Project

The concept of special topics should be considered in the context of the status and future prospects of PAC, and its role in the global business of scientific publications.
