The German National Adhering Organization, the Deutscher Zentralausschuss für Chemie, through one of its component Societies, the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker, has arranged for the translation and publication of selected IUPAC Reports and Recommendations in the journal Angewandte Chemie. According to Angewandte Chemie, publishing translations of IUPAC Recommendations and Technical Reports is a way to promote the use of chemical professional language in German. Properly defined terms and clear nomenclature form the basis of the understanding among scientists in a discipline and are essential for the exchange among scientific and professional language and general language. All translations are examined, corrected, and authorized by an acknowledged expert, the “Obmann.”
For more information, please contact Elisabeth Weber <[email protected]> or visit the journal Web site <www.angewandte.com>. Suggestions for themes and experts are welcomed.
Following is a list of recently translated and published Reports and Recommendations:
