Not an Epilogue, but a Commencement!

You might recall that in July 2019, IUPAC published a special issue of Chemistry International on various issues related to its history.* This special issue demonstrated at length the challenges met in the past by an international scientific organization in a world where geopolitical and cultural contexts shift constantly, and in which science, and in particular the chemical sciences, evolves and grows, even as its role and responsibility in a globalized society grows in parallel.

The experience and history of your NAO are equally valuable to complete the accounts of IUPAC and of chemistry around the globe. As we look forward to pursuing the historical work with the IUPAC community, we will welcome an opportunity to hear from you and receive information and historical material (pictures, manuscripts, publications) that you might have.

Thanks in advance for your input and consideration and for completing this short survey online
