Essential Elements

"Our understanding of the fundamental nature of our world is based on chemistry," Bryan Henry, University Professor Emeritus, Department of Chemistry, University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada states in the publication's foreword. Bryan Henry brought the idea of an international chemistry year to the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) Executive in 2006. Today, chemists are essential elements in facing the increasing demands for food, water, energy conservation and sustainable thinking.
