242nd ACS National Meeting Denver, CO August 28 - September 1, 2011
The History of Chemistry, its predecessor Alchemy, and the people involved in it are often portrayed on postage stamps. Stamps showing chemical formulae, structure, and laboratory glassware are especially enjoyable topics for postage stamps. In addition scientific units and constants have been honored on philatelic issues. The metric system and mathematical equations related to chemistry can be found on many issues. Stamps of the world relating to chemistry and its history will be discussed.
