* World Chemistry Congress
Participants in the 41st IUPAC General Assembly are entitled to register
for this Congress at the special discount rate of AUD 400 (equivalent to
USD 225 at current exchange rates).
Sufficient accommodation has been set aside for anticipated General
Assembly/Congress participants; however, accommodation is limited owing
to several major events in Brisbane during these dates. If you require
accommodation, we strongly advise you to register asap.

* Organic Synthesis
As presented at 13th International Conference on Organic Synthesis
(ICOS-13) (Warsaw, Poland, 1-5 Jul 2000) Organic Synthesis continues to
develop modern ways of constructing molecules by elaborating new
synthetic methods, enhancing stereoselectivity and enantioselectivity,
and introducing new metal-mediated processes. Selected lectures are
published in Pure Appl. Chem., Vol. 72, No. 9, pp. 1577-1797 (2000);
