New Books from IUPAC

Magnitudes, Unidades y Símbolos en Química Física, segunda edición.

Por Andrés Pérez Masiá, José M. Guil, Josefa E. Herrero, y Anselmo Ruiz Paniego. Editorial Centro de Estudios Ramón Areces, S.A., Madrid, Spain (1999), pp. ix + 1—214. ISBN 84-8004-361-X. [Spanish translation of IUPAC "Green Book", Quantities, Units, and Symbols in Physical Chemistry, 2nd edition. Prepared for publication by Ian Mills, Tomislav Cvitas, Klaus Homann, Nikola Kallay, and Kozo Kuchitsu. Blackwell Science (1993), pp. ix + 1—166.]

This Spanish translation of the 2nd edition of the IUPAC "Green Book" was prepared by Andrés Pérez Masiá, José M. Guil, Josefa E. Herrero, and Anselmo Ruiz Paniego, Instituto de Química Física "Rocasolano", CSIC, Madrid, Spain. It is available from Editorial Centro de Estudios Ramón Areces, S.A., Tomás Bretón, 21, E-28045, Madrid, Spain.

The 2nd edition of the IUPAC "Green Book" represents a further revision of the 1988 edition, incorporating resolutions of the Conférence Générale des Poids et Mesures (CGPM), international standards of ISO-31, and recommendations from the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) and from other IUPAC commissions. Major additions beyond the 1988 edition appear in the sections on quantum mechanics and quantum chemistry, electromagnetic radiation, and chemical kinetics, in order to include physical quantities used in the rapidly developing fields of quantum chemical computations, laser physics, and molecular beam scattering. Sections have been added on dimensionless quantities, and on acronyms and abbreviations used in chemistry, and a full subject index has been added to the previous symbol index.
