Green Book PDF Version Green Book PDF Version · Home · Strategic Plan · Periodic Table of Elements. IUPAC Secretariat PO BOX The seven IUPAC Color Books are the world's authoritative resource for chemical Quantities, Units and Symbols in Physical Chemistry (Green Book). The Green Book strives to improve the exchange of scientific information between different disciplines in the international pursuit of scientific research.
It is expected that important connections and projects will arise with these International Agencies and other main chemical industries operating in the Green Chemistry field. Bangkok will be an interesting opportunity for comparison and dialogue as many young researches, students and representative of international organizations will give their opinion on the best way to teach, to learn, share knowledge and deepen some of the issues addressed by the participants among a true international audience. I would like to thank Prof. Supawan Tantayanon for her dedication to IUPAC through this major event, which will reinforce the dissemination and activities in the Green Chemistry field worldwide. I would like to extend a particular welcome to the early career researchers and students, who are key to the future development of our green and sustainable world. This conference is the eighth of a series of biennial conferences on green chemistry that have firstly been held in in Germany, then Russia, Canada, Brazil, South Africa, and Italy, except the 7th ICGC in Moscow recently which was organized in odd year.
The text of the third printing is identical to that of the second printing. It was reprinted in , , and McGlashen in A full history of the Green Book's various editions is provided in the historical introduction to the third edition. The second edition and the third edition second printing of the Green Book have both been made available online as PDF files; the PDF version of the third edition is fully searchable.
The four-page concise summary is also available online as a PDF file. External Links below. In addition to the obvious data on quantities, units and symbols, the compilation contains some less obvious but very useful information on related topics. Mills, F. Pavese, M.

This third edition of the Green Book, Quantities, Units, and Symbols in Physical Chemistry, is based upon the most up-to-date sources for fundamental constants, data, and nomenclature in the fields of chemistry and physics. As with previous versions, this edition has been written to enable clear understanding in an interdisciplinary environment and to convey information in a global multidisciplinary arena in which chemistry plays a central role.
Examples are provided to explain how to avoid ambiguity in conveying information. The third edition has a significantly extended index that provides a dictionary of terms and symbols and useful conversion tables. The second edition has been available online as a PDF file, and the third edition will be available as a PDF one year after publication.
This is the definitive guide for scientists and organizations working across a multitude of disciplines requiring internationally approved nomenclature. Not convinced that the Green Book is an invaluable reference to have?
Chapter 8 is entirely new and outlines the treatment of uncertainty in physical measurements. Chapter 9 lists abbreviations and acronyms. Chapter 10 provides the references, and Chapter 11, the Greek alphabet. In Chapters 12 and 13, we end with indexes. The IUPAC Periodic Table of the Elements is shown on the inside back cover and the preceding pages list frequently used conversion factors for pressure and energy units.
The people most directly responsible are acknowledged in the Historical Introduction.
We also wish to acknowledge the members of the other Commissions of the Physical Chemistry Division: Chemical Kinetics, Colloid and Surface Chemistry, Electrochemistry, Spectroscopy, and Thermodynamics, who have each contributed to the sections of the book that concern their various interests.
We also thank all those who have contributed whom we have inadvertently missed out of these lists. Jeremy G. Frey and Herbert L. The second edition of that manual prepared for publication by M.
Paul in [1. The decision to embark on this project originally proposed by N. Lide was chairman of the Commission. The working party was established at the meeting in Lyngby, when K.
Kuchitsu was chairman, and the project has received strong support throughout from all present and past members of the Commission I. Lide, D. The extensions included some of the material previously published in appendices [1.
The style was also slightly changed from being a book of rules towards a manual of advice and assistance for the day-to-day use of practicing scientists. Examples of this are the inclusion of extensive notes and explanatory text inserts in Chapter 2, the introduction to quantity calculus, and the tables of conversion factors between SI and non-SI units and equations in Chapter 7.
The second edition was a revised and extended version of the previous edition. The manual has found wide acceptance in the chemical community, and various editions have been translated into Russian [2. Large parts of it have been reproduced in the 71st and subsequent editions of the Handbook of Chemistry and Physics published by CRC Press.
