Reports from Commissions

Commission on Microchemical Techniques and Trace Analysis (V.2)

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

The Commission meeting was attended by seven of the Commission's sixteen members. Three members had resigned since the last meeting, among them the former chairman. Dr. Ryszard Lobinski was elected Titular Member and new Chairman of the Commission. A new National Representative from Korea had been suggested by the Korean NAO, and Prof. Heon Kang was accepted as a new member of the Commission.

The status of current projects was reviewed. Five projects were canceled because no activity had occurred since the last meeting and the person responsible for them had left the Commission. For the remaining projects, completion before 2001 is foreseen. It was decided not to start any new projects at this stage. A discussion of new projects is being initiated through e-mail, and a final choice will be made at the next even-year meeting in Pau.

The joint project on guidelines for terms related to speciation was the subject of a separate meeting. Comments received from outside experts were discussed, and it was decided to hold a meeting in Brussels in March to work these comments into the final version of the Recommendations to be published in Pure and Applied Chemistry.
