"The RSC is delighted that Syngenta has embraced so enthusiastically and generously our vision for the Pan Africa Chemistry Network that will help build the chemical science capacity that is vital for social and economic development across the Continent. We are looking forward to partnering with Syngenta and our African colleagues to build a network of local and national chemical science communities that will address such fundamental challenges as food security, disease control and biodiversity.

"With Syngenta's support, the Pan Africa Chemistry Network will bring African scientists together to address these key issues through new initiatives spanning education and research, workshops, exchange programs and increased knowledge sharing. Syngenta's partnership will have a significant impact on chemical scientists in Africa as they strive to translate Millennium goals into reality across this vast Continent."

RSC chief executive Dr Richard Pike said: "Built upon the success of the RSC Archives for Africa which was launched in Ethiopia last year and thanks in large part to the grant from Syngenta, the Pan Africa Chemistry Network is an innovative approach to develop science education in Africa."
