Tp third volume includes papers on C tracer studies of y-Al203 impregnated with chloroiridic acid (Ni Yueqin et al.), a review of isunobilised transition metal complex catalysts for use in N2 fixation (Sun Chunting and Liu Xueming), the oxidation of toluene to benzaldehyde (Zhu Jingmin et al.), SMSI on Pt/Ti02 catalysts (Zie Maosong et al.), SO2 oxidation in flue gas using nitrogeneous active carbon (Chen Xianming and Hu Baomei) and a similar paper on the use of iodine-containing active carbon catalysts for SO2 removal (Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics). The contents of Volume 4 and later volumes will be sunnnarised in later issues of Applied Catalysis. Further information on this journal can be obtained from the Editorial Board at P.O.

The first issue of this journal,titled in Chinese "Cuihua Xuebao", was published in March 1980 and a publication rate of four issues per year has since been maintained. The average issue contains approximately 80 pages, these compromising some eight to ten research papers plus "Research Notes" and occasional reviews. Although the journal is in Chinese, the research papers all include a well-written abstract in English and each issue includes a detailed English contents page. The papers published so-far maintain a balance between those which are purely theoretical and those which are industrially oriented. Without giving a complete list of the contents, it would be impossible to give a complete picture of the coverage but I have listed below the more applied papers from the firstthree volumes; I apologise to those authors whose papers have not been mentioned. The first volume contains papers on the use ofafibrous materials as catalyst Julian Ross carriers(Chen Song-ying and Peng Shao-yi), coordination catalysts based on rare Preparation of Ethanol, Acetic Acid and earths for stereospecific polymerisaAcetaldehyde tion (Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry), XPS studies of Ir-Al203 N.
