Chemical Society meeting Aug. 28 - Sept. 1 features variety of multidisciplinary research

Washington, D.C, sessions include findings on a new way to fight antibiotic-resistant bacteria, a coating that keeps car windows from fogging and the latest in counterterrorism techniques

A close look at chemical plant safety, new kinds of carbohydrate foods that may help you lose weight and a permanent coating that prevents car windows from fogging these are just a few of the findings chemists will present at the 230th national meeting of the American Chemical Society in Washington, D.C., Aug. 28 - Sept. 1. The world-wide lineup of scientists will feature presentations on research in health, medicine, food, agriculture, energy, materials, nanotechnology, biotechnology, green chemistry and the environment.

The meeting will be held at the Washington Convention Center, 801 Mt. Vernon Sq., and surrounding hotels. More than 12,000 scientists are expected to attend and more than 7,400 presentations are scheduled. The American Chemical Society is the world's largest scientific society.

On Monday, Aug. 29, a Presidential Symposium on "The Future of Chemical Plant Security: Where Will We Be in 2015?" -- hosted by ACS President William F. Carroll, Ph.D., -- will feature a presentation by Charles E. McQueary, Ph.D., Under Secretary for Science & Technology, Department of Homeland Security, on what the U.S. Government is doing to combat chemical threats nationally. The program is one of a series of symposia related to "Enterprise 2015," a society-wide effort led by Carroll to identify potential changes in the chemical enterprise in the next decade.

Also on Monday, a symposium on "Bioactive Polysaccharides in Diet, Disease, and Coronary Heart Disease" will focus on newly created forms of super carbs which, when added to foods like baked goods, yogurt and smoothies, help fill you up, without loading on the calories. Foods with the super carbs are designed to help keep the weight off and reduce the risk of diabetes, hear
