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.

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 has created new IUPAC interactive electronic periodic table. The accompanying educational materials inform students and the general public about the many uses of isotopes in our lives. Following the global launch on August 17, 2016, the new IUPAC interactive electronic periodic table and accompanying resources can be accessed at www.isotopesmatter.com. A print version of the periodic table of the isotopes and elements is available at http://ciaaw.org/periodic-table-isotopes.htm. Further details will be published in the peer-reviewed IUPAC Journal, Pure and Applied Chemistry.
