Date:1/31/2011

WASHINGTON, Jan 31, 2011 The American Chemical Society (ACS) today launched the inaugural edition of its International Year of Chemistry (IYC) Virtual Journal, a dynamic online snapshot of the countless ways in which chemistry improves everyday life for people around the world. It includes a special video welcome from Nancy B. Jackson, Ph.D., who serves as ACS President during the IYC. Jackson is with the Sandia National Laboratories in New Mexico.

Every month through this landmark year, the IYC Virtual Journal will showcase ways in which chemistry improves everyday life for people around the world. It illustrates how chemists and other scientists work to protect the environment; develop lifesaving new medicines; create cleaner, greener and more sustainable sources of energy; design new materials for cars, buildings, electronics, medical implants and a host of other products.

"The four subject areas covered by the virtual journal health, energy, environment, and materials are the core themes of the International Year of Chemistry," noted Madeleine Jacobs, executive director and CEO of the ACS. "Improving human health, finding sustainable sources of energy, protecting the environment, and developing new materials are among the great global challenges of the 21st Century. The International Year of Chemistry virtual journal provides a unique opportunity to enhance public understanding of the many contributions and solutions that chemists and other scientists are working on to address these great global challenges."

Topics in the launch edition of the IYC Virtual Journal include the use of tobacco and proteins in coffee beans as pesticides; a new genre of environmentally friendly detergents; raves from Europe about "no-mix" toilets; new lubricants that save gasoline and evidence that people over 50 may be consuming too much copper and iron.
