To produce a new version of the original book "Principles
of Chemical Nomenclature - A Guide to IUPAC Recommendations",
in the light of nomenclature developments since its publication
The IUPAC colour books are currently in a state of revision,
especially the inorganic Red
Book (published 2005), the organic Blue Book (expected 2007;
and the macromolecular Purple Book (project 2002-048-1-400).
The original book was aimed at pre-University and first-year University
students and their teachers, and the new version will have a similar
audience. However, it is intended to widen the scope a little, to
include more biochemical nomenclature, more organometallic nomenclature,
and some treatment of Preferred IUPAC Names (PINs; see
both projects 2001-043-1-800
and 2006-038-1-800) and
the IUPAC International Chemical Identifier (InChI).
G.J. Leigh will be general editor; a writer and reviewer will contribute
to each main section - see assignment below. Much of the material
and the format of the original version will be retained; this is
a revision, not a rewriting.
