IUPAC Community

IUPAC members form a Global Chemistry Network. Our members, associates, and affiliates – chemical societies, national academies of science, industrial companies, research and development institutions, universities, laboratories, and individuals from around the world represent most of the world’s chemistry research and industry. IUPAC also has formal and informal ties to international organizations that touch on every aspect of society. Our Membership Network currently comprises nearly 60 national member countries that are actively engaged in the governance of the Union; approximately 31 associated organizations that share common goals and interests; about 58 company associates interested in supporting or participating in IUPAC activities through the Committee on Chemistry and Industry; nearly 1,500 individual volunteers engaged in committees and projects; and almost 2,000 individuals who are affiliate members, and 2,160 fellows.
