In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and the International Year of the Periodic Table, IUPAC and the International Younger Chemists Network (IYCN) announce the creation of a Periodic Table of Younger Chemists. Beginning in July 2018 and ending in July 2019 at the World Chemistry Congress and IUPAC General Assembly, we will honor a diverse group of 118 outstanding younger chemists from around the world who embody the mission and core values of IUPAC. The resulting periodic table will highlight the diversity of careers, creativity, and dedication of the young chemists leading us into the next century. Winners will be profiled on the IUPAC100 website and will receive a certificate from IUPAC. Elements of the Periodic Table of Younger Chemists will be revealed over time in order of scientific discovery. Approximately eight elements will be revealed each month beginning in July 2018 with the final elements being awarded at the IUPAC General Assembly and World Chemistry Congress in Paris, France in July, 2019.
Nominations are now being accepted. For more information, visit their official website by clicking at this link.
