Dr. P. elected 2016 Chair-elect of ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry
The Division of Inorganic Chemistry represents a diverse body of scientists who come together to understand and promote the richness of the chemistry of the elements. Molecular biologists, materials scientists, and many types of chemists are members of this division. Due to the diversity of interests among our members, four subdivisions are available for membership in addition to the general membership in the Division.
The Division has several responsibilities: the development and coordination of programming of interest to our members at national meerings; continuing improvement in the education of current and future chemists in the beauty of inorganic chemistry and the value of chemistry in general; representation of our members’ interests to the ACS through the election of Councilors and other positions; and maintaining the fiscal health of the Division to support all other activities. The Division usually has one of the largest technical programs at the national meetings.
