Chemists To Meet March 21-25 In Anaheim

The American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society, will hold its spring national meeting Sunday, March 21 through Thursday, March 25, at the Anaheim convention center and nearby hotels.

Findings to be discussed range from the latest research on how to treat obesity to the use of geochemicals in detecting extraterrestrial life. An estimated 5,000 scientific papers will be presented to the approximately 10,000 attendees.

The meeting is open to the media and a full service press room will be located in the Anaheim Hilton. A more complete schedule will be available from the ACS web site after January 25 and can be accessed at http://www.acs.org/meetings/anaheim.

Reporters seeking to make arrangements to cover the meeting should contact Sally Pecor at the ACS Office of Communications at s_pecor@acs.org.

From Monday through Wednesday during the meeting, more than 250 companies will be exhibiting products and services of interest to the chemical community.

Symposia and topics scheduled for discussion include:

  • Beer -- In a cold, wet glass bottle or in a shiny new plastic container?

  • Milestones in polyesters: the revolution in packaging some of today's most popular products from beer to water.

  • Presidential Symposium -- Frontiers in color chemistry. Are the primary colors really red, yellow and blue?

  • The color behind the color in televisions, video monitors and printing.

  • Environmental chemistry and its applications to household and industrial waste products.

  • Obesity and diet; new findings on how fax is treated in the body that could help dieters as well as heart disease patients.
