U.S. National Committee for IUPAC

The National Academy of Sciences is the U.S. adhering body of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and it maintains its relationship with the union through the U.S. National Committee (USNC)/IUPAC. IUPAC serves to advance the worldwide aspects of the chemical sciences and to contribute to the application of chemistry in the service of humankind.

IUPAC100 logoPeriodic Table of Younger Chemists seeking nominations
In celebration of its centenary (IUPAC100) and the International Year of the Periodic Table in 2019, IUPAC and the International Younger Chemists Network (IYCN) are accepting nominations for the Periodic Table of Younger Chemists. Nominate a creative & dedicated young chemist to be honored. https://iupac.org/100/pt-of-chemist/

IYPT logo2019 International Year of the Periodic Table
On 20 December 2017, the United Nations (UN) General Assembly proclaimed 2019 to be the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT 2019). In doing so, the UN has recognized the importance of raising global awareness of how chemistry promotes sustainable development and provides solutions to global challenges in energy, education, agriculture, and health. 
The development of the Periodic Table of the Elements is one of the most significant achievements in science and a uniting scientific concept, with broad implications in Astronomy, Chemistry, Physics, Biology and other natural sciences. The International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements in 2019 will coincide with the 150th anniversary of the discovery of the Periodic System by Dmitry Mendeleev in 1869, and with the centenary of IUPAC (IUPAC100). More information on IYPT is found here (PDF).

International Younger Chemists Network
The International Younger Chemists Network (IYCN) was officially launched at the 49th IUPAC General Assembly in São Paulo, Brazil, in July 2017. The IYCN wants to “create a unified global network of young chemists to communicate, collaborate, educate, and mentor”. To find out more, read more in ChemViews Magazine.(online 5 Dec 2017).

IUPAC Young Observer Program
To introduce younger chemists to the activities and projects of the International Union, IUPAC holds a Young Observer program. Every two years, younger chemists from around the world attend IUPAC division and committee meetings of the General Assembly to learn more about the union. Many of them ultimately become involved in the union in various ways. The next program will be for the 2019 General Assembly and Congress, July 5-12, 2019, in Paris, France.


Isotopes MatterIsotopes Matter!!  New Interactive Periodic Table

In partnership with researchers at the King’s Centre for Visualization in Science, a team of IUPAC scientists and educators created an interactive electronic isotopic periodic table. Launched in August 2016, it can be found at  www.isotopesmatter.com. The accompanying educational materials inform students and the general public about the many uses of isotopes in our lives. A print version of the periodic table of the isotopes and elements is available at http://ciaaw.org/periodic-table-isotopes.htm
