Chemistry International Volume 44, Issue 2

TOC and full issue pdf on

cover: Artificial Intelligence was made the focus of the 2021 World Chemistry Leadership Meeting held virtually during the IUPAC Congress. The closing keynote presented by Jeremy Frey “How do we shape the future?” brought together the ideas raised by the speakers of the sessions and the highlights of the discussions held simultaneously in Malaysia, in The Netherlands, and with the panel in Montréal. Ultimately, Frey even suggested directions for IUPAC to take the lead in the transformation of chemistry as a science in the digital age. See more p. 6.
