Commission on Agrochemicals and the Environment (VI.4)
Summary of Minutes of Commission Meeting at IUPAC General Assembly, Berlin, Germany, 8—10 August 1999
Twenty-one members of the Commission on Agrochemicals and the Environment (VI.4) met for three days during the General Assembly in Berlin. Meetings for the next three years will be in Taichung (2000) in association with a workshop, Brisbane (2001), and Basel (2002).
The Commission discussed fourteen projects at various stages from proposed to completed and ready for publication. It is current practice for the whole Commission to review the recommendations from each project before publication. It is not clear who will have this role once the commissions disappear. The recommendations could hardly be IUPAC recommendations if they are sent for external review because the expertise will no longer reside in IUPAC. Extended summaries of reports, previously published in Pure and Applied Chemistry, have been published in Pesticide Science. The Commission web site is running, with full copies of recent papers from Pure and Applied Chemistry and Chemistry International available. An active Glossary of Terms has been established.
