The Royal Society of Chemistry has gathered material on climate change from a chemical point of view, to be found under Chemistry and COP26.
In light of the UN Climate Change Conference that took place in Glasgow last month, the RSC published a position statement as well as a manifesto on climate change. Furthermore, the page features several educational videos on different aspects of environmental issues and sustainability. The chemistry behind factors of climate change and technologies with the aim of counteracting it are explained.
“[…]the role it played in the history of chemistry and the European sense of belonging between people and ideas.”
Justus von Liebig, who worked in the laboratory from 1824 to 1852, is considered as one of the founders of organic chemistry and revolutionized chemistry education as we know it, by combining research and teaching in a laboratory.
Nowadays, his laboratory is a museum and part of the UNESCO World Heratige. The collection includes historical documents, chemical apparatus, scientific instruments and much more! The Liebig-Museum is described as a time capsule where visitors can experience the original function and the working conditions of the time when chemistry first entered the universities.
The GDCh (German Chemical Society) is offering a variety of chemistry related advanced training courses on their academy website. The program includes:
Online courses Live courses with exchange options (breakout rooms, chats, etc.) E-learning courses Digital course with a variety of learning materials and flexible learning times (live sessions, chats / forums, self-study, etc.) Face-to-face courses Courses take place on site (with appropriate hygiene concepts)
The GDCh (German Chemical Society) has developed and released a new app for your smart-devices. In accordance with the GDCh executive committee’s vision, this new application aims to connect members and keep them updated, wherever they are.
Since the release of the ChemRxiv beta version in 2017, the support and usage of the free archive service for unpublished preprints in chemistry has increased tremendously. Since August 2019 the Chinese Chemical Society and the Chemical Society of Japan became co-owners of ChemRxiv, joining the founding societies the American Chemical Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the German Chemical Society.
Just recently the 10.000th preprint article has been uploaded to the archive. The most prevalent topics include:
