Chemical & Engineering News 80th anniversary issue highlights periodic table

It will be a celebration of the periodic table, from hydrogen to darmstadtium and beyond, from the elements that have magical and practical properties to cure disease, create high-tech materials and enhance our standard of living, to others that cause disease and pollute our rivers. This is the theme of a special issue of Chemical & Engineering News, due out Sept. 8, which also celebrates the 80th anniversary of the newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society.

The issue will include 89 essays on the entire Periodic Table of the Elements, written by luminaries from across the chemical enterprise industrial, academic and government. Among the essayists are Nobel Prize winners, chief executive officers of major chemical and pharmaceutically oriented companies, literary lights such as Oliver Sacks ("Uncle Tungsten" and "The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat") and Alan Lightman ("Einstein's Dreams" and "Reunion"). Among the authors will be those who helped discover elements.

Overall, the issue will examine elements that play key roles in everyday life from the TV screens we watch to the food we eat. It will be a personal exploration of the elements at a glance, in a style appropriate for high school-age students. Each essay also contains pertinent technical information about the elements.

This entire special issue of C&EN will be available on the Web at no charge. To access it go to http://www.cen-online.org and click on the special icon.
