In the past 30 years the Manual on Definitions, Terminology and Symbols in Colloid and Surface Chemistry, prepared by Everett, has lost very little of its significance for the community of people working in the field of colloid and surface chemistry. To make this Manual optimally available to the interested public the present IUPAC Commission on Colloid and Surface Chemistry including Catalysis has decided to reproduce the Manual for consultation through Internet. In order to bring further recommendations produced over the years by the various Commissions on Colloid and Surface Chemistry including Catalysis (CI.6) to the attention of the reader annotations are added as footnotes. In most cases these annotations just refer to other IUPAC documents. In the case of the sections 1.11 Electrochemical terms in colloid and surface chemistry and 1.12 Electrokinetics the annotations provide some new definitions and symbols. The new footnotes start with the marker (2001).
The Tentative Manuals on Optical properties, Rheology, Electrochemical nomenclature and the nomenclature in the field of Heterogeneous Catalysis, indicated in Everett's Preface have appeared in the meantime. A full list of recommendations published by CI.6. is presented below. The Manuel on Electrochemical nomenclature is produced by the Commission on Electrochemistry (CI.3).
