IUPAC Stability Constants Database
IUPAC has approved a three-year project to bring the IUPAC Stability
Constants Database up to date by abstracting data from many new journals
and rechecking mainstream journals for omissions. The database contains
all data from book compilations of stability constants published by
IUPAC and the Royal Society of Chemistry (London), and it is intended
to be a definitive compilation of all significant published stability
Data collection will be carried out mainly in New Zealand (under the
supervision of Prof. K. Powell), with assistance from chemists in Russia
and Great Britain.
Data validation and database compilation will be carried out by Dr.
L. Pettit. In addition to ligand names and empirical formulas, methods
of including ligand structures will be investigated by Dr. Solovev
Comments from the chemistry community are welcome and should be addressed

Yorkshire, LS21 2PW, England, UK; Fax: +44 1943 880310; E-mail: email@example.com.
