Connecting Chemical Worlds

The 2023 IUPAC Congress took place in the beautiful city The Hague by the Royal Netherlands Chemical Society (KNCV) and the Dutch Research Council (NWO).

Many THANKS for your participation in the IUPAC | CHAINS2023 in August 2023.


Diversity and Inclusion

Chemistry is all about diversity: each new bond, each additional group makes the whole richer and stronger. IUPAC recognizes that to fulfill its vision, it must strongly commit to embracing and promoting transparency, diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunities for all.

Advancing the Worldwide Role of Chemistry

IUPAC serves the international scientific endeavor in the dual function of a fundamental science and mission-oriented Union. The Union is in a unique position to contribute to the central interdisciplinary chemical sciences.
