Title: Spectrochemical Analysis - Conversion of Orange Book
Chapter 10 to Glossary Format
Chairman: David S.
Gauglitz, Walter Lund,
Gunnar Nordin, and Bernhard
Chapter 10 of the Orange Book* is a narrative style compilation
of many Spectrochemical Analysis Committee terminology documents, all
also written in narrative style. These definitions need to be converted
to glossary style. Many terms in Chapter 10 are also included in the
Gold Book and
in Chapter 11 of the Orange Book in glossary format. These terms need
to be rectified with the narrative style usage in Chapter 10 to achieve
a complete glossary format spectrochemical analysis terminology appropriate
for XML conversion.
There is an extensive list of spectrochemical analysis terms in the
latest print version and the present on-line version of the Orange Book
(IUPAC Compendium of Analytical Terminology). Most of these terms are
contained in Chapter 10, which is in narrative format for historical
reasons. The early Commission V.4 (Spectrochemical Analysis) documents
adopted narrative style rather than glossary format to enable simultaneous
definitions and usages to be achieved. Chapter 11 contains a number
of the same terms, but in glossary format. The Gold Book also contains
a number of the same terms, in glossary format.
The goal of this project is to rectify the definitions of terms presented
in both OB chapters 10 and 11, as well as those already in the Gold
Book, and convert terms unique to OB chapter 10 from narrative to glossary
New terminology entries is not a goal of this project. Updated definitions
of terms already included will be considered.
