Interdivisional Subcommittee on Materials Chemistry (ISMC)

Aims

The Interdivisional Subcommittee on Materials Chemistry will foster, manage, and monitor projects and other IUPAC activities in Materials Chemistry and Materials Science. It will lead and coordinate all of IUPAC’s activities in Materials Chemistry and serve as a focus for such activities including Conferences and Workshops and for interaction with relevant external bodies. It will implement new activities to develop and strengthen IUPAC in the materials area.

Description

This subcommittee was formed by Divisions I, II and IV in order to provide an in-depth analysis and discussion of the current status of materials chemistry in IUPAC and, more specifically, to:

  1. Determine the future structure and function of the Interdivisional Subcommittee on Materials Chemistry, and
  2. Discuss/envision the possibility of a new ‘Materials Chemistry Division’ within IUPAC. [see 2009 report – pdf 118KB]
