(To view this file, leave CI and enter IUPAC Website).

The first 2-day meeting of the ad hoc IUPAC Education Strategy Development Committee (ESDC) was held at the Royal Institution in London on 20-21 Feb 2000.

Report on FAO/IAEA/AOAC International/IUPAC International Workshop on Principles and Practices of Method Validation

(To view this file, leave CI and enter IUPAC Website).

This workshop resulted from the internationally recognized fact that full method validation carried out through an interlaboratory method performance study is an expensive but also a limited exercise. It is impossible to organize interlaboratory studies for all analytical methods in use for determination of analytes in various analyte/matrix combinations.

Report on ICSU/IUPAC Southeast Asia Workshop on Molecular Basis of Biodiversity: Conservation and Sustained Innovative Utilization

Thirty-seven participants from Southeast Asia (China, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam) and Europe were invited to this workshop, which was jointly organized by the International Council for Science (ICSU); IUPAC; the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); and the National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC)/NSTDA.

Report on International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM)–Committee for Amount of Substance (CCQM) Working Group Meeting and Workshop on Measurement Uncertainty

CCQM is a technical committee that operates as a part of BIPM, a central international metrological organization.Working Groups (WGs) carry out the technical work of CCQM. Present WGs are grouped in two fields, as follows: i) primary methods, such as isotope dilution mass spectrometry, coulometry, static and dynamic analysis of gas mixtures, titrimetry, determination of freezing point depression, and NMR spectroscopy as a primary method; and ii) international comparisons, including key comparisons, organic analysis, inorganic analysis, gas analysis, and pH.
