Remarks: All members
of CNIC will be involved in the project
Completion Date: 2005 - project completed
To update and rationalize the current Red
Book ( RBI - Recommendations 1990), making it consistent with current
nomenclature practice, particularly with CNOC. Simplify in some areas
to make RBI a widely used Handbook (cross referencing to more detailed
publications, e.g. as planned for the boranes, and other Pure Appl.
Chem. publications, and to other books, such as Red
Book - Part II).
Project begun Summer '98, with 2 years' duration. The production of
the book will be iterative with detailed comments from CNIC members
on all chapters required to ensure consistency throughout. Comments
from the chemical community will be welcome.
'Names for inorganic radicals' published in Pure
72(3), 437-446, 2000, will form the basis for a revised section
