IUPAC 100th ANNIVERSARY TO BE CELEBRATED IN 2019


Research Triangle Park, NC, USA, July 28, 2017 - The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), the globally-recognized authority on chemical nomenclature and terminology, will celebrate its 100th anniversary on July 28, 2019. The anniversary theme is A Common Language for Chemistry, and while the celebration will recognize the successes of IUPAC’s first one hundred years, its purpose is not to solely dwell upon the past, but rather to look to the future of what this international community of chemists, working closely together, can continue to contribute now and into the future in meeting the world’s needs through chemical research.


“For almost a century IUPAC’s mission has been to provide objective scientific expertise for the resolution of critical global issues that involve every aspect of chemistry, all of which have had societal impact,” said IUPAC President, Natalia Tarasova. “In 2019, we will pause to celebrate our successes and give serious deliberation as to how IUPAC can best continue in the years ahead to serve as an advocate for the free exchange of scientific information for the benefit of humankind worldwide. While this celebration is just one moment in time, we hope that it will have a lasting impact through events that will advocate the value and importance of science literacy to students worldwide, inspire younger generations of men and women to become the innovative chemists of the 21st century and beyond, and have a positive influence on the public’s perception of science in general and chemistry in particular.”
Preparations for the celebration have been initiated by the Centenary Planning Committee under the leadership of Professor Mary Garson and Dr. Laura McConnell. Professor Garson noted that “while the Committee has taken the lead in initiating special events, we strongly encourage IUPAC’s National and Associate National Adhering Organizations, Associated Organizations, Company Associates, Affiliates, and friends - indeed, the worldwide chemistry community, to participate in this celebration, by becoming involved in events currently in development or by creating their own.”


Garson also noted that the celebration will start in early 2018 with the monthly release of a series of stories highlighting the essential IUPAC tools and activities that were developed during the past century and continue to be used by scientists today. Other special events in development include a worldwide online competition for young students centered on the Periodic Table and IUPAC; a global breakfast for women chemists and students who will be “gathered together” in early 2019 via Skype, teleconference, and social media to celebrate the anniversary; a visualization of IUPAC’s history and its major contributions; and a summer, inspired by the IUPAC Centenary, for young graduate and post-graduate students from all over the world - in particular from Africa - with a focus on teaching Green Chemistry and its role in sustainable development. The anniversary will also be highlighted during the 47th World Chemistry Congress scheduled to take place July 7 - 12, 2019 at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France.

*************************************************************


About IUPAC: IUPAC was formed in 1919 by chemists from industry and academia. Since, the Union has succeeded in fostering worldwide communications in the chemical sciences and in uniting academic, industrial and public sector chemistry in a common language. IUPAC is recognized as the world authority on chemical nomenclature, terminology, standardized methods for measurement, atomic weights and many other critically evaluated data. In more recent years, IUPAC has been pro-active in establishing a wide range of conferences and projects designed to promote and stimulate modern developments in chemistry, and also to assist in aspects of chemical education and the public understanding of chemistry. More information about IUPAC and its activities is available at www.iupac.org.
For further information, contact Dr. Lynn M. Soby, Executive Director, at secretariat@iupac.org or executivedirector@iupac.org.
