LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
I would like to welcome Dr. Joseph Magee as the new assistant editor of the Chemical Information Bulletin (CIB). Joe
joined the permanent staff of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Boulder, Colorado in 1986 after
completing doctoral studies (Rice University, 1983) and two post doctorate appointments. Recently, Joe's research efforts at
NIST have focused on thermodynamic and transport properties of greener refrigerants, greener solvents, and biologically
active proteins. Joe's interests in the area of scientific publishing include appointments as an associate editor of the ACS'
Journal of Chemical and Engineering Data, as a division representative to the NIST Editorial Review Board, and as a
member of the editorial advisory boards for the Thermodynamics Research Center's Tables Project and the Journal of
Chemical and Engineering Data. I look forward to working with Joe in making the Bulletin a more interesting and valued
publication. Joe can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have some good news for the CIB subscribers in the United States. At the ACS Spring National Meeting in Atlanta, the
CINF Executive Committee approved mailing of CIB to U.S. subscribers to be done by First Class Mail (until now, the
issues were mailed by Third Class Mail and they sometimes arrived after the national meeting).
We have also made a decision to do a Survey about the Bulletin, to find out how people are using it and what they would
like to see in it in the future. Please help us make CIB a better and more interesting publication by responding to the survey.
You can do that by answering the questions found on p. 5 of this issue and mailing the form back to us, or you can fill it out
online at www.acscinf.org.

Bulletin! The CINF E-News received an ISSN this year. Rick Williams, CINF webmaster, has been busy improving the
