IUPAC has established (General Assembly 1997, Geneva) an "Ad
Hoc Strategic Committee on BioMolecular Chemistry" which
has been assigned the task of coordinating and developing the
activities at the bio-frontiers of molecular chemistry. The Committee
will, as an initial action, compile a list of the current bio-related
projects within the participating Divisions. It will further embark
on the task of formulating and subsequently executing, novel interdisciplinary
projects in the domain of molecular interpretation of bio-processes
and bio-phenomena. The Organic Chemistry Division shall, starting
January 1998, nominate two titular members for work on this project.
The "Bio-oriented projects in Divisions I, II, III and VII
have been inventoried and, where applicable, coordination of work
on projects between the relevant Divisions has been initiated.
The first activity of the Interdivisional committee on Biomolecular
Chemistry, in the context of the project, consisted in the organization
of the microsymposium on "Novel
Porphyrinoids and their Metal Complexes" at the GDCh/IUPAC Congress
in Berlin, 1999. The theme of Biomolecular Chemistry will be coordinated
in the future by Division III, under its newly adopted mandate.
Interdivisional Projects, especially together with Division VII,
are in preparation for the biennium 2000-2002 and will be presented
under the new IUPAC project system.
