New Projects

IUPAC Stability Constants Database

IUPAC has approved a three-year project to bring the IUPAC Stability Constants Database up to date by abstracting data from many new journals and rechecking mainstream journals for omissions. The database contains all data from book compilations of stability constants published by IUPAC and the Royal Society of Chemistry (London), and it is intended to be a definitive compilation of all significant published stability constants.

Data collection will be carried out mainly in New Zealand (under the supervision of Prof. K. Powell), with assistance from chemists in Russia and Great Britain.

Data validation and database compilation will be carried out by Dr. L. Pettit. In addition to ligand names and empirical formulas, methods of including ligand structures will be investigated by Dr. Solov’ev (Russia).

Comments from the chemistry community are welcome and should be addressed to Dr. L. Pettit, Academic Software, Sourby Old Farm, Timble, Otley, Yorkshire, LS21 2PW, England, UK; Fax: +44 1943 880310; E-mail: [email protected].
