- - - - - -- SHORTCUT to NEWS & NOTICES from IUPAC -- - - - - -

* Erick Carreira is to be awarded the Thieme-IUPAC Prize 2002
Erick Carreira is to be awarded the Thieme-IUPAC Prize 2002 in
recognition of his outstanding achievements in the field of synthetic
organic chemistry. His research focuses on the asymmetric synthesis of
biologically active, stereochemically complex, natural products, and has
resulted in the highly lauded syntheses of challenging target molecules
and the development of catalytic and stoichiometric reagents for
asymmetric stereocontrol using an approach that is both innovative and
elegant. He will be presented the prize at ICOS14 in Christchurch, New
Zealand on 16 July, 2002.

* Report of the Special Meeting of Executive Committee, 1-2 December
2001, Oxford, UK

* Pharmaceutical Salts: Properties, Selection, and Use - A Handbook
Wermuth, C.G. and Stahl, P. H.
Verlag Helvetica Chimica Acta, 2002 [ISBN 3-906390-26-8]
This book is destined to be an essential reference for students of
medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry, and an indispensable handbook
for research-and-development chemists, analytical chemists, biologists,
development pharmacists, regulatory and patent specialists, and
medicinal scientists engaged in preclinical development of drugs. This
comprehensive up-to-date guide will be an instructive companion for all
scientists involved in research and development of drugs and, in
particular, of pharmaceutical dosage forms.

* Analytical Sciences
ICAS 2001 covered all the fields of analytical chemistry that it seems
possible to think of. From analytical atomic spectrometry and applied
laser spectroscopy to nano-technology, separation science, and sensors
of all kinds, the symposia and posters painted a broad canvas of the
present state of the art in analytical science, and also suggested
future directions and dreamed about future capabilities. The plenary
lectures by Drs. A. Manz, S. Terabe, M. Takagi, G. M. Hieftje, and Y. R.
Shen as well as two selected invited talks by Drs. E. Yeung and T.
Sawada are now published in the October 2001 issue of Pure and Applied
Chemistry. The Conference editor, Dr. Yoshio Umezawa insured that the
papers were like the lectures, well balanced in terms of chemical and
physical methods of analysis, and all were seminal.
Pure Appl. Chem., Vol. 73, No. 10, pp. 1555-1623, 2001.

* Solution Chemistry
Key lectures for the highly productive and valuable interactive sessions
on molecualr liquids, nonelectrolyte solutions, electrolyte solutions,
ionic liquids and molten salts, and colloids in liquids, presented at
the 27th International Conference on Solution Chemistry, Vaals, The
Netherlands, 26-31 August 2001, are presented in Pure Appl. Chem., Vol.
73, No. 11, pp. 1679-1748, 2001.
Conference editor, Bernard Gill

* Green Chemistry in Japanese
The Japanese version of the PAC Special topic issue on Green Chemistry
(PAC July 2000) has been prepared by J. Miyamoto, and is now avaialble.
The publication represents a collection of expert reviews on aspects of
the topic of 'Green Chemistry', with by an introductory overview of the
evolution of the project, its rationale, and its interfaces with
complementary initiatives and organizations.

IUPAC seeks your comments
Synopses and full text of provisional recommendations on nomenclature
and symbols are available from the site. All comments on these
recommendations are welcome and will be taken into consideration. The
final revised versions will be published in Pure and Applied Chemistry
and the synopses in Chemistry International.

Currently up for comments:
