  242nd ACS National Meeting & Exposition

  August 28–September 1, 2011 Denver, Colorado


  This display is intended to introduce audiences to chemical   philately, in the same manner that a young person might be guided   on their first trip to an orchestra. Postage stamps will be   displayed that span the History of Chemistry, its predecessor   Alchemy, and the people involved in its development. Stamps will   be exhibited that display chemical formulae, structures, and   laboratory glassware. Other philatelic issues include equations,   the metric system, physical constants and scientific units. These   stamps from around the world should be of interest both to novice   and seasoned enthusiasts.
