Foreword Res. Che m. In termed. , V ol. 2 8, No. 2 ,3, p . 8 7 (2 002) Ó VSP 2002. Also a vailable onl ine - As members of the RCI Editorial Board and P resident and past -President of G IRSE, it is our p leasure to present this issue of Research on Ch emical Intermediates that contains a collection of com munications p resented at the 6th G eneral M eeting of G IRSE (G ruppo Ital iano di Risonanza di Spin E lettronico), t he Italian EPR spectroscopy gro up, t hat was held i n Urbino on S eptember 1 7– 20 , 2 001. T he meeting was attended b y som e 70 parti cipants out o f ca. 1 00 G IRSE ass ociates, and b y fou r sci entists from C anada, F rance, Sw itzerland and U SA w ho w ere in vited to del iver lectures in t he more ad vanced bran ches o f E PR an d rel ated spectroscopies. Overall, the meeting consisted of 9 p lenary lect ures, 18 oral communications an d 22 p oster presentations. GIRSE ass ociates are expert i n different disciplines (including Ch emistry, Biol- ogy, Ph ysics, and Med icine) but al l share the use of E PR s pectroscopy as a fun- damental research tool. T he i nterdisciplinary nature o f G IRSE em erges from th e papers co llected in the present RCI issue. This is the second t ime that these pages h ost G IRSE’s scienti c contributions since the proceedings of the 4th m eeting were p ublished i n a RCI issue in 1996. Since then, ou r as sociation has organised the third Italian EPR Sch ool (Brall o di Pregola, 1 996) an d h as played a major role in the organisation of t he rst European EPR S chool (Cao rle, 1 999), spo nsored b y the Federation of E uropean E PR G roups. Presently, GIRSE i s ruled b y a ve-member e xecutive co mmittee chaired by Pro f. G. F . P edulli, whose s econd man date w ill expire on D ecember 2 001. T he ne w executive co mmittee (2002– 2003) h as already b een el ected and the new as sociation chairman w ill be d esignated fro m amo ng i ts members at the rst committee meeting. Finally, we w ish to emp hasise that the 6th G IRSE m eeting was dedicated t o t he memory of Pro f. L uigi Pas imeni (University of Pad ua, It aly), who w as among t he promoters o f the establishment of G IRSE an d w ho tragical ly passed away earl y this year. Pro f. Pasi meni operated fo r a long t ime in t he eld of t ime-resolved EPR s pectroscopy and CID EP a nd hi s contribution t o these techniques w as outlined during the commemoration by P rof.
