IUPAC Technical Reports are scientific publications resulting from IUPAC Projects or other research activities related to: the compilation and critical evaluations of data, or of parameters and equations; the critical assessment of methods and techniques; guidelines for the presentation of methods of analysis or for the calibration of instruments; determinations of specific elements or compounds in selected samples in special environments; studies of the biodegradability of materials; chemical process control aspects; and evaluations of properties of specific materials. The manuscripts are reviewed by the IUPAC International Committee on Terminology, Nomenclature and Symbols (ICTNS)  for consistency of nomenclature and symbols usage with current IUPAC standards. Once a manuscript has been approved, it is  published in IUPAC’s journal, Pure and Applied Chemistry (PAC). These reports are freely-available in the year following their publication.
