Compendium de terminologie chimique. Recommandations IUPAC et Lexique anglais/francais, 2 Édition.

Préparé par Jean-Claude Richer. Editions Tec & Doc, Paris (1999), pp. viii + 1-646. ISBN 2-7430-0356-1. [French translation of IUPAC "Gold Book", Compendium of Chemical Terminology, 2nd edition. Compiled by Alan D. McNaught and Andrew Wilkinson. Blackwell Science (1997), pp. vii + 1-450]

> description in french

This French translation of the 2nd edition of the IUPAC "Gold Book" was prepared by Prof. Jean-Claude Richer, Department of Chemistry, University of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is available from Editions Tec & Doc, 11 rue Lavoisier, F-75384 Paris Cedex 08, France.
The 2nd edition of the IUPAC "Gold Book" represents a very substantial enhancement of the 1st edition.
In the twelve years since publication of the 1st edition, IUPAC has revised and updated most of the original definitions, and has produced new glossaries of terms in many areas of chemistry not previously covered. Around 7 000 entries cover all the traditional areas of chemistry and also growing fields such as stereochemistry, photochemistry, organic class names, atmospheric chemistry, catalysis, biotechnology, chromatography, toxicology, and bioanalytical chemistry. The resulting compendium, like the 1st edition, contains only definitions approved by international consensus, and thus can be regarded as truly authoritative. It is an essential reference resource for chemists everywhere.
