Futurist research highlights chemists' national meeting March 26-30 in San Francisco

New research on anticancer therapies, therapies, endocrine disruptors, fuel pollution and nicotine toxicity are among the topics scheduled for discussion at the March 26-30, 2000, meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Francisco. ACS is the world's largest scientific society.

As the first ACS meeting in the next millennium, the society has asked researchers to present information about what the future holds for their area of chemistry. More than 6,000 papers are expected to be presented to the 14,000 members expected to attend. The 219th national meeting will be held at the Moscone Convention Center and surrounding hotels.

ACS will operate a press room on-site and further details about press registration and arrangements will be available in early January, 2000, at www.acs.org. Reporters also can contact Charmayne Marsh at 202-872-4445 or y_marsh@acs.org. News releases about the meeting will be on the ACS web page and will be posted on EurekAlert! at www.eurekalert.org.

Symposia and topics on the San Francisco program include:

  • Chemistry of Taste - how taste develops chemically in the mouth and makes one food favored over another; food chemists' use of the electronic nose and electronic tongue, new tools to advance the science of taste.
  • Toxicology of Drugs of Abuse -Nicotine and marijuana.
  • Environmental Endocrine Disruptors - New questions on the potential risks posed by pharmaceuticals and personal-care products.
  • Drug delivery techniques - new research on effective ways to deliver drugs within the body.
  • New Prospects in Anticancer Agents in the 21st century
