IUPAC White Book on Chlorine
A contribution to the debate on the effect
of chlorine and chlorine-containing compounds on the environment.
Over the past few years, much concern
has been expressed bout the effect of Chlorine and Chlorine-containing
compounds on the environment. This 'White Book' constitutes an independent
and unbiased contribution from the International Union of Pure and Applied
Chemistry (IUPAC), in its capacity as an international nongovernmental
organization, to the continuing debate on the Chlorine Issue. The chapters,
prepared by experts from throughout the world, evaluate critically various
aspects of the subject and are of interest not only to academic institutions,
industry, governmental agencies and environmental organizations, but
also to the general public.
The 'White Book' is the first publication
by IUPAC of this type. Similar analyses are envisaged of the chemical
aspects of other globally importnat issues, in which IUPAC can play
a role, standing firmly on a scientific foundation independent from
governments and industry, by calling on its worldwide network of experts
from various fields of chemistry.
