HONOLULU - The latest research from Australian scientists will be presented at the 2000 International Chemical Congress of Pacific Basin Societies, December 14-19, 2000.

The weeklong scientific meeting, held once every five years, is hosted by the American Chemical Society, in conjunction with its counterparts in Australia, Canada, Japan and New Zealand.

Australian chemists will present new findings on topics including (papers are embargoed for release until date and time of presentation):

Rubber degradation - Researchers at Monash University have found a way to use a high-tech measurement technique - nuclear magnetic resonance - to determine degradation in rubber products, such as tires, seals and conveyor belts. The noninvasive technique allows people, particularly those involved with maintenance, to more accurately predict the usable lifetime left in rubber products. (MACR 89, 11:05 a.m., Friday, Dec. 15)

Pesticides in wine - In an effort that may lead to a better wine, an Australian research team has developed new, high-tech methods to detect insecticides and fungicides in wine and grapes. The methods, which use a technique called enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), appear to be as good as standard screening methods. The researchers are also developing antibody-based diagnostics for detecting fungal contaminants in order to improve wine qu
