Supplements that target fat loss … metals that protect themselves … ammonia air pollution … decoys that stop viruses … beefed-up plastic wrap … a vitamin for cancer prevention … new fuels … a kinder, gentler aspirin …and more at the 220th national meeting of the American Chemical Society

A popular dietary supplement promises to help people lose fat and keep it off. A different approach to making drugs yields a kinder, gentler aspirin. A new gasoline additive packs the punch of MTBE without the environmental threat.

These are but a few of the findings that will be presented at the 220th national meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society. The meeting will be held here August 20-24 in the Washington Convention Center and surrounding hotels.

More than 5,500 research papers will be presented to the 10,000 scientists expected to attend. News releases will be posed on the World Wide Web, on an embargoed basis, at www.eurekalert.org under the "ACS 220th national meeting" button. Advisories and news releases will be posted at www.acs.org/press news after the embargo is lifted.

The meeting is open to accredited news media. The press room will be in Room 9 of the Washington Convention Center, located at 900 9th Street, N.W. It opens Saturday, August 20 at noon Eastern time and closes that day at 6 p.m. The hours are 7 a.m.- 6 p.m. Eastern Time from Sunday, August 20 through Thursday, August 24.
