New Developments in Medicine, Environment, Food, and Agriculture to be Reported

Symposia on the origin of elements in the solar system, pesticide residues in eggs, Gulf Coast environmental problems and food and chemistry in the next millenium are among topics to be discussed at the 218th national meeting August 22-26 of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society.

The ACS meeting will highlight new developments in chemical research in 34 specialty areas of chemistry, including medicinal, environmental, nuclear, cellular, geochemical, and agricultural and food chemistry. More than 5,600 papers are scheduled for presentation to an expected 12,000 scientists. The more than 650 technical sessions will be held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and surrounding hotels.

The meeting is open to the news media. A preliminary program and schedule of papers to be presented can be accessed from the ACS web page at http://www.acs.org/meetings/neworleans. Also, as information becomes available, news releases will be posted on EurekAlert! at www.eurekalert.org.
