LANL celebrates International Year of Chemistry

-A A +A
By The Staff

In order to bring attention to and celebrate the achievements of chemistry and its contributions to civilization, the General Assembly of the United Nations passed a resolution declaring 2011 as the International Year of Chemistry.

The year 2011 was selected because it coincides with the 100th anniversary of Marie Curie’s Nobel Prize in chemistry and the 100th anniversary of the founding of the International Association of Chemical Societies (now IUPAC, the International Union of Pure & Applied Chemistry).

The Chemistry Division and Los Alamos National Laboratory are doing their part.

They are celebrating the International Year of Chemistry through a series of activities, lectures, and events, many of which are open to the public.

“Our goal, which is consonant with the greater goal of the United Nations and IUPAC, is to educate concerning the discipline of chemistry and share some of our excitement concerning the wonders of chemistry,” said chemistry division leader Carol Burns, who was just appointed to the post this year. “By highlighting chemistry, the United Nations hopes to interest more bright young people in careers in this important and fascinating field.”
