Forecasting the Role of Chemisty in Shaping Advances in Medicine, Technology, and Materials
What's Next in Science for the Next Century?
A fiber one-hundred times stronger than steel and only one-sixth its weight--called a "buckytube"--is one of many technological developments that will find application in the next century, scientists will report. New ways to fight disease, the impact of gene mapping and sequencing on chemistry and medicine, and how chemistry can be used to improve the world's standard of living are also among topics that will be discussed by a panel of leading research chemists at the Dallas-based national meeting of the American Chemical Society, world's largest scientific society, on March 29.
