Revision and Updating of IUPAC Red Book I

Given developments in both inorganic and organic chemical nomenclature in the nine years since the current Red Book I (Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry, Recommendations 1990) was published, there is a need to make this popular reference work consistent with current practice.

IUPAC has approved a project to revise and update Red Book I that will also include a simplification of some sections (e.g., covering the solid state and stereochemistry). The revised volume is to be supplemented by other publications on more advanced areas of inorganic nomenclature (e.g., Red Book II—in preparation). The revision of Red Book I is planned for completion in 2000 and is being coordinated by Professor Neil G. Connelly with participation of all members of IUPAC's Commission on Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry (II.2). Comments from the chemistry community are welcomed and should be addressed to Professor Neil G. Connelly, School of Chemistry, University of Bristol, BS8 1TS, England, UK; Tel.: +44 117 928 8162; Fax.: +44 117 929 0509; E-mail: [email protected].
