American Chemical Society to Meet in Boston

The 234th national meeting of the American Chemical Society in Boston will take place on Aug. 19-23 in the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

ACS is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress and a global leader in providing access to chemistry-related research through its multiple databases, peer-reviewed journals, and scientific conferences, expects to bring more than 15,000 scientists and include more than 9,500 presentations dealing with topics such as the environment, energy, nutrition and nanotechnology. Its main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio.

For one of the meeting's early highlights, ACS President Catherine T. (Katie) Hunt, Ph.D., will host a keynote symposium on Aug. 19 titled "Material Innovations: From Nanotech to Biotech and Beyond," at which noted scientists will discuss challenges and opportunities for commercialization of new discoveries in biotechnology and nanotechnology, supporting the meeting's overall theme, "Biotechnology for Health and Wellness."
