Affiliate Membership Program

Affiliate Membership is open to any individual with an interest in IUPAC and IUPAC Activities. The program was launched in 1986 to maximize the participation of chemists throughout the world in the affairs of IUPAC and to disseminate information about its activities to a much wider audience.

Today, more than 1,400 chemists from 50 countries are registered as Affiliates. Included in this number are nearly 140 sponsored Affiliate memberships for chemists, aged 35 years or less, from developing and economically disadvantaged countries.

Benefits of Affiliate Membership

  • Affiliates receive four seasonal copies per year of the IUPAC news magazine Chemistry International (CI), which includes advance information on IUPAC-endorsed conferences and provisional recommendations. Individuals are asked and invited to make comments on the recommendations.
  • Through CI affiliates are kept informed of IUPAC’s programs and activities. Affiliates are encouraged to volunteer in their areas of expertise.
  • Affiliates may obtain a discount of 25% on the cost of all IUPAC publications. This includes the IUPAC nomenclature books, as well as compendia of chemical data and reports of many IUPAC-endorsed conferences.
  • Affiliates are entitled to a 10% discount on registration fees at IUPAC-endorsed conferences – a significant savings.
