The Division is responsible for maintaining
and developing standard systems for designating chemical structures,
including both conventional nomenclature and computer-based
systems. This responsibility is to be fulfilled by:
Identifying the needs of the user community.
- Generating projects arising from those needs.
Identifying project leaders and task groups
to carry out the work.
Administering approved projects financially,
monitoring their progress, and approving resulting recommendations
for review by established IUPAC procedures.
Identifying new sources of expertise and
enabling their involvement in projects.
As far as possible, ensuring that nomenclature
systems projects and the resulting recommendations are compatible
with each other, with established IUPAC recommendations, and
with computer-based systems for manipulating chemical names
