U.S. National Committee for the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry

The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) serves to build global interaction among research communities and promote advances in chemical sciences and technology at the international level. In the past several years, the U.S. National Committee (USNC) for IUPAC has played an important role in ''restructuring" IUPAC by setting a vision for reforms. Now the Union is strategically positioned to address relevant international issues in a timely, cost-effective manner. To define the relevant issues to be addressed, the USNC is reaching out to the professional societies and organizations for their input. By rebuilding the channels of communications, the committee will seek the involvement of the U.S. chemical communities to prioritize the international issues of concern and evoke a dialog to establish priority areas. The USNC/IUPAC projects also include the Young Observer Program, which seeks participation of outstanding young chemists in IUPAC committees, and the Company Associates Program, which involves the U.S. chemical companies.
