Its sole project the Revision of the Green Book: Quantities, Units
and Symbols in Physical Chemistry consists of preparation of the
third edition. The typing of the whole text into a standard computer-readable
format (Revtex) is taking time. It is being carried out under the
supervision of M. Quack and a meeting of I.1 is planned for January
1999 in order to finalize the text and get it to the printers. The
main changes with respect to the second
edition, except for producing the book on a computer, involve
extensions in the field of surface chemistry and the treatment of
uncertainties of measurement.
A complete draft document was submitted to public review comments
until 31 March 2006.
