Bringing Prof. R.S. Sindhu’s fans together

Many of us have/had a distinct opportunity of being associated with Prof. R.S. Sindhu as a student at UG/PG/Research level, a trainee or a colleague . His versatile knowledge, professional skill, sincerity, honesty and humility have always inspired all of us. This forum is an attempt to bring all his fans together.

The core objectives of the forum are:

  1. To foster the spirit of sincerity, honesty and industry as practiced by Prof. R.S. Sindhu during his teaching and research career.
  2. To provide a forum for getting answers to different problems related to Chemistry and other disciplines of Science.
  3. To get informed about new developments taking place in Chemistry and other areas of Science.
  4. To update knowledge about suitable and innovative pedagogical practices for teaching – learning of different concepts of Science.
  5. To inform the fellow members about personal and professional achievements of each individual.
  6. To cooperate and coordinate with fellow members in their professional endeavors.

PROVISIONAL REPORT OF THE TASK GROUP ON GROUP 3 OF PERIODIC TABLE

Some time back ,I had informed the readers that IUPAC has constituted a task group with the mandate of recommending whether group 3 of periodic table should have Sc, Y, La and Ac or Sc, Y, Lu and Lr set of elements. (https://iupac.org/project/2015-039-2-200. The group started on 18th December, 2016 and had to give report by 31st December, 2021. At present, a provisional report on discussions on group 3 of the periodic table has been given by the chairman of the group, Eric Scerri which was published on January22, 2021.

In the course of many discussions held by the task group, it has been concluded that there is no objective means to adjudicate between group 3 consisting Sc, Y, La and Ac or as Sc, Y, Lu and Lr. It is recommended that IUPAC should make a ruling on the question which in the final analysis is one of the convention rather than one that can be decided on objective scientific grounds. What has also become apparent is that the question cannot be treated independently of that of the form ofperiodic table as a whole. The question cannot be solved on the basis of physical, spectral, chemical and electronic properties alone.
