Terms And Definitions In Ultraviolet Disinfection
A series of recommended terms and definitions for use in ultraviolet disinfection are summarized. These terms and definitions have been harmonized with the IUPAC and SI system of nomenclature. This paper has been excerpted from a Draft Report of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) Working Party on Ultraviolet Disinfection. The members of that Working Party are: James Bolton (Canada), Chairman; Ernest R. Blatchley III (USA), William Cairns (Canada); Oluf Hoyer (Germany), Karl Linden (USA); Ronald Rahn (USA); Regina Sommer (Austria); Elliott Whitby (Canada). The Working Party invites comments on these recommendations, which should be sent to the attention of the author.
