Want to help put chemistry on the calendar in 2011?

Discussion created by Nancy Mccormick-Pickett on Jul 28, 2010



Next year is the International Year of Chemistry (IYC) and to celebrate ACS is inviting people to highlight everyday advances in chemistry.


Through the IYC-2011 initiative “365: Chemistry for Life,” a different aspect of chemistry will be highlighted every day on Submit ideas for a favorite element, compound, discovery, process, chemist, or chemistry innovation at, by September 17, 2010. Suggestions should fall into one of four categories: energy, environment, materials, and health. Complementing these categories are the overarching themes of water and the many faces of chemistry. Anyone may participate. Selected submissions will receive recognition and an IYC-2011 pin and t-shirt. For more ideas on how to celebrate the International Year of Chemistry, visit  and
