Tools of the Trade |  

The following review introduces a new series of articles on “Tools of the Trade,” which will provide a forum for views and discussion on one of the Union's goals: “IUPAC will facilitate the advancement of research in the chemical sciences through the tools that it provides for international standardization and scientific discussion.”
The series, which will run through 2006–2007, was initiated by Kip Powell, past president of the IUPAC Analytical Chemistry Division (Division V). It will allow for a presentation of key outputs from IUPAC projects and will cover all fields of chemistry. As well as informing readers,it is hoped that the series will renew awareness of the valuable contributions IUPAC continues to make in facilitating the advancement of research in the chemical sciences. If you wish to contribute to this series, please contact <kip.powell@canterbury.ac.nz>.

The IUPAC Stability Constants Database

by Leslie D. Pettit

Metal-ligand stability constants (SC) are of vast importance to all scientists (not just chemists)working quantitatively in solution. IUPAC has been actively involved in the compilation of literature values of such constants for over half a century. The project was first considered in 1951 and the first compilation was published in 1957 under the auspices of IUPAC. This was followed by further volumes in 1964, 1971, and 1983. The editors of these volumes, which included data to about 1973, included most of the major pioneers in the field: G. Schwarzenbach (Switzerland), L.G. Sillen (Sweden), G. Anderegg (Switzerland), J. Bjerrum (Denmark), A. Martell (USA), H. Irving (UK), E. Högfeldt (Sweden), and D. Perrin (Australia).
