IUCr 1996 17th General Assembly - Proposal to change name of Commission on Small Molecules

Members of the Commission on Small Molecules felt that the word `small' was indefinite and that the use of `molecules' would appear to remove most of inorganic and intermetallic crystallography from the remit of the Commission. The Commission on Small Molecules therefore proposed that its name be changed to Commission on Structural Chemistry.

The General Assembly approved the change
