Crop Protection Chemistry Award – Call for Nominations

The IUPAC Division on Chemistry and the Environment is now accepting nominations for the second IUPAC International Award for Advances in Harmonized Approaches to Crop Protection Chemistry. The award recognizes individuals in government, intergovernmental organizations, industry, and academia who have exercised personal leadership for outstanding contributions to international harmonization for the regulation of crop protection chemistry.

Awardees receive a USD 3000 honorarium plus travel and per diem reimbursement to attend the award presentation ceremony. Corporate sponsorship for the award is provided by Dow AgroSciences.

Nominations for the 2012 award are due 1 December 2011, and should be sent to

Dr. John Unsworth, chair

IUPAC Subcommittee on Crop Protection Chemistry

25 Vellacotts

Chelmsford, Essex CM1 7EA

United Kingdom

Phone: +44 1245 440 056

E-mail: unsworjo@aol.com

Nominations must include the following:

  • A nomination letter including the nominee’s birthplace, date of birth, citizenship, business address, and a description (200–1000 words) of the reasons why the nominee should receive this award, stressing major accomplishments toward international harmonization for the regulation of crop protection chemistry.

  • A curriculum vitae that includes places and names of employment, professional affiliations, committee and working group assignments, and a listing of relevant regulatory guidance documents, reports, and/or publications.

  • One or more letters of support.

The IUPAC International Award for Advances in Harmonized Approaches to Crop Protection Chemistry is presented on a biennial basis during even-numbered years in conjunction with an IUPAC-sponsored conference or special symposium. The first award was presented to Denis J. Hamilton, a retired chemist with a 45-year career at the Queensland Department of Primary Industries, Australia.

IUPAC Gold Book Online

An updated version of the Gold Book was released in December 2010. The main new feature of Release 2.2 is the availability of a PDF output, which is created from the same source as the HTML version, so it should be totally compatible. However, if users notice a discrepancy between the pdf and html, they are asked to send their feedback to the developers. This release also includes an improved display of automatically added links, which are now distinguished visually from links added by authors.

The Gold Book online is the electronic version of the IUPAC Compendium of Chemical Terminology. It is a collection of terminology definitions from IUPAC recommendations previously published in Pure and Applied Chemistry and in the other IUPAC Colour Books. Terminology definitions published by IUPAC are drafted by international committees of experts in the appropriate chemistry sub-disciplines, and ratified by IUPAC’s Interdivisional Committee on Terminology, Nomenclature and Symbols (ICTNS). In the online edition of the Compendium, these IUPAC-approved definitions are supplemented with some definitions from ISO and from the International Vocabulary of Basic and General Terms in Metrology; both these sources are recognized by IUPAC as authoritative. The result is a collection of nearly 7000 terms, with authoritative definitions, spanning the whole range of chemistry. The online version offers several unique features and indexes, including alphabetical and several thematic indexes, a feature to search by structure and substructure and a tool to goldify your text.
