Standard XML Data
Dictionaries for Chemistry
A new project has begun under
the Committee for Printed and Electronic Publications, entitled
"Standard XML Data Dictionaries for Chemistry" (project #2002-022-1-024).
It was developed in response to a widely accepted need for
IUPAC to extend its leadership in the development of standard
chemical terminology from printed to electronic communication,
especially through the XML format. The principal objective
of this program is to develop an effective means of enabling
the use of IUPAC glossaries for creating a standard "namespace"
for representing chemical information in digital form. This
project seeks individuals interested in participating in any
aspects of this task.
