Reports from Commissions


Commission on Thermodynamics (I.2)

Summary of Minutes of Commission Meeting at IUPAC General Assembly, Berlin, Germany, 8-10 August 1999

Twenty-one members of the Commission on Thermodynamics (I.2), including national representatives and observers, met for three days of discussions during the 40th IUPAC General Assembly in Berlin. Two new Titular Members, Manuel Ribeiro da Silva and Eckhard Vogel, were elected, and R. Span (Bochum) was appointed to the Subcommittee on Thermodynamic Data.

 

Commission on Chemical Kinetics (I.4)

Summary of Minutes of Commission Meeting at IUPAC General Assembly, Berlin, Germany, 8-9 August 1999

The Chairman outlined the new structure and mission of IUPAC that would be put in place following the next General Assembly. The key elements, such as the move to a project-based structure and the reduction in costs of the General Assembly, were discussed in some detail; the general consensus of the members was that the new structure could lead to a more vigorous and accountable organization.

 

Commission on Biophysical Chemistry (I.7)
