by Miloslav Nic, Jiri Jirat, and Bedrich Kosata
The IUPAC Compendium of Chemical Terminology, commonly known as the Gold Book, is one of IUPAC’s major contributions to communication among chemists. It collects terms and definitions from primary specifications and provides single-point access to
them. With more than 6500 entries, it is a real treasure for every chemist...
The IUPAC Gold Book is now available in an all-new format, making this key resource computer and Net friendly. The new version takes full advantage of new technologies based on eXtensible Markup Language (XML)and provides efficient ways of browsing, searching, and simply using this reference. The XML Gold Book is a milestone in chemical referencing. See full text above for a detailed presentation of the new format and features.
