New Year–New Team

For all of us, the new year is a time for new resolutions. For me, it is a time to assume new responsibilities as managing editor of Chemistry International. As part of this transition, I would like to ask you, the reader, to remember that without your input, CI has no reason for being. I urge you–members, fellows, affiliates, organizational representatives–to share your stories, send your points of view, and communicate news to your peers and IUPAC colleagues.

With this new year, also comes a new biennium, which is for IUPAC a significant event. It is the time for the new officers to take charge, relaying former efforts and new initiatives, and ensuring continuation. In this issue, Prof. Steyn, the new President presents his views of the Union and the task before him. Chemical industry and education, preservation of historical records, and involvement of young scientists are among the subjects covered in other articles.

A brand new feature of this issue is the web reference (or pointer) that prominently follows all of the newsletter articles. These pointers refer you to the exact spot on the web–on the IUPAC web site or another site–where you can find more information on the subject at hand.

Enjoy this first issue of the new year and remember–give your input!
