Swiss Chemical Society

The Swiss Chemical Society (SCS) represents chemists and scientists from chemistry related fields in national and international organizations. The society supports the exchange of scientific and technical know-how and offers corresponding networking possibilities to the academic and industrial community. It has members in more than 50 countries and represents about 2700 individual and institutional members.

Key activities of the SCS include ...

  • Scientific meetings, congresses and courses to assist, inform and educate the community in all fields of pure and applied chemistry.
  • Awards for outstanding contributions in a wide range of chemical fields.
  • Representation of interests of Swiss scientists in national and international organizations.
  • Publication of the scientific journal CHIMIA and the involvement in associated journals, e.g. HCA, Journal of ABC, PCCP and the journals of ChemPubSoc.

The SCS is a member of European Chemical Sciences (EuCheMS), the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) and the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences (SATW). It is also connected to the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, IUPAC (with the Platform Chemistry of the SCNAT being the Swiss representative)

IYPT 2019 - International Year of the Periodic Table of the Chemical Elements

The Periodic Table of Chemical Elements is one of the most significant achievements in science, capturing the essence not only of chemistry, but also of physics and biology. 1869 is considered as the year of formulation of the modern concept of the Periodic System by Dmitri Mendeleev (and others). 2019 is the 150th anniversary of this formulation and has therefore been proclaimed the "International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT2019)" by the United Nations General Assembly and UNESCO.
