Nomenclature of Thermal Analysis

The scope of this document is to provide scientists working in the field of thermal analysis with a consistent “definitions of terms” that are commonly used within the field to allow precise communication and understanding. In considering all the matters of nomenclature, the current Committee has followed the advice of the late Robert Mackenzie in that:

This document acknowledges that nomenclature develops—without regulated definition—as the field of thermal analysis develops. Some terms used by authors and scientists rapidly become accepted by the scientific community, even if the term is not consistent with past definitions, science or grammatically correct. However, if such a term is widely used and understood, it is reported here.

Definition of the Halogen Bond

The task group recommends the definition given here for the halogen bond. The short definition is followed by a not exhaustive list of experimental and/or theoretical features, which can be used as evidence for the presence of a halogen bond. A comprehensive technical report is being prepared by the task group in order to relate the proposed definition with the past work on halogen bond and provide the rationale for the proposed definition.

Vocabulary for Nominal Properties and Nominal Examinations — Basic and General Concepts and Associated Terms

Scientists of disciplines in clinical laboratory sciences have long recognized the need of a common language for efficient and safe request of investigations, report of results, and communication of experience and scientific achievements. Widening the scope, most scientific disciplines, not only clinical laboratory sciences, rely to some extent on various nominal examinations in addition to measurements. The “International vocabulary of metrology—Basic and general concepts and associated terms” is designed for metrology, the science of measurement. The aim of the proposed vocabulary is to suggest definitions and explanations of concepts and terms related to nominal properties, i.e. properties that can be compared for identity with other properties of the same kind-of-property, but have no magnitude.
