The deadline for all nominations has passed. No additional nominations will be accepted.

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of IUPAC and the International Year of the Periodic Table, IUPAC and IYCN announce the creation of a Periodic Table of Younger Chemists. Beginning in July 2018 and ending in July 2019 at the World Chemistry Congress and IUPAC General Assembly, we will honor a diverse group of 118 outstanding younger chemists from around the world who in embody the mission and core values of IUPAC. The resulting periodic table will highlight the diversity of careers, creativity, and dedication of the young chemists leading us into the next century. Winners will be profiled on the IUPAC100 website and will receive a certificate from IUPAC. Elements of the Periodic Table of Younger Chemists will be revealed over time in order of scientific discovery (see Wikipedia).  Ten elements will be revealed each month beginning in July 2018 with the final elements being awarded at the IUPAC General Assembly and World Chemistry Congress in Paris, France in July, 2019.

The final three awardee announcements are:

14th International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry (ISMSC19) in Lecce, Italy, 2 June 2019; the following elements were announced: Einsteinium, Fermium, Mendelevium, Lawrencium, Nobelium, Rutherfordium, Dubnium, Seaborgium, Bohrium, and Meitnerium > see announcement

102nd Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition, (CCCE 2019), 6 June 2019, in Québec City, Canada; the following elements were announced: Hassium, Darmstadtium, Roentgenium, and Copernicium > see announcement

47th IUPAC World Chemistry Congress in Paris, France, July 8, 2019; the final six elements will be announced: Nihonium, Flerovium, Livermorium, Oganesson, Tennessine, and Moscovium

Nominees must be 40 years of age or younger and meet the following criteria:

One of the following:

  • Currently pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in chemistry or a related field
  • Holds an undergraduate or graduate degree in chemistry or in a related field
  • Currently working in the field of chemistry or a related field

AND

Actively working in one or more of the following areas:

  • Scientific topics relevant to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (link)
  • Increasing the public appreciation and understanding of chemistry
  • Fostering diversity in the chemical enterprise
  • Improving chemistry and science education for students
  • Advancing interdisciplinary and international collaboration in chemistry research

All nominations are to be submitted via the on-line form. Nominators may be organizations or individuals. Self-nominations are accepted. Nominees not selected during a particular round will be carried over to the next group of elements. For more information, please email Christine Dunne at PTChemists@IUPAC.org.

 

Elements will be revealed throughout the period from July 2018 to July 2019 with 8 to 10 elements revealed per month. The deadline nominations for elements being revealed in July 2018 is May 1, 2018. Nominations for later elements may be submitted any time prior to the deadline. Early submission is encouraged. See the table below for subsequent deadlines.
