Through the years, there have been countless contributions of women to chemistry. In this International Year of the Periodic Table, it is important to recognize the contributions that women have made in the field. Historically, most notable are the distinct roles that women have played in the development of the Periodic Table – Marie Curie (discovery of radium (Ra) and polonium (Po), received two Nobel Prizes for her work on radiation, and became the namesake of curium (Cm)); Berta Karlik (astatine (At)); Lise Meitner (isotope of protactinium (Pa), discovered nuclear fission, namesake of meitnerium (Mt)); Ida Noddack (rhenium (Re), nominated three times for a Nobel Prize); Marguerite Perey (francium (Fr)).
Here, in this special issue of Pure and Applied Chemistry, in celebration of the International Year of the Periodic Table and the 100th anniversary of IUPAC, we recognize a number of the women who received the IUPAC Distinguished Women in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering Award. They have provided short technical reviews for this special issue, or have provided career advice and insight for future scientists and engineering, or have provided examples of how they have navigated the many challenges and opportunities they have encountered in their own careers.

This PAC issue is released in time with the International Day for Women and Girls in Sciences, Feb 11, and also coincides with the recent announcement of the Awardees of the IUPAC 2019 Distinguished Women in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering
