American Chemical Society unveils International Year of Chemistry virtual journal
Date:1/31/2011

nt is based on research published in ACS' 39 peer-reviewed scientific journals and Chemical & Engineering News, its weekly newsmagazine.

IYC Virtual Journal also connects visitors with content in ACS' popular online calendar, developed specifically for the IYC. The calendar serves as a virtual time machine, transporting the public back to some of the epic events and great intellects that shaped modern society through the magic of chemistry.

Called IYC-365: Chemistry for Life, the calendar links almost 250 days of the year to notable events highlighting chemistry's important role in health, medicine, energy, the environment and related fields. They range from Jan. 1 which in 1907 saw debut of the Chemical Abstracts Service, a chemical database that has fostered unprecedented scientific discovery to Dec. 31 and a scientific law about those New Year's toasts with champagne. A mouse-click on the days in-between revisits Joseph Priestley's discovery of oxygen; the first successful treatment of diabetes with insulin; George Washington Carver's discovery of hundreds of new uses for crops like peanuts; Marie Curie's landmark research on radioactivity; and much more. IYC-365:Chemistry for Life certainly doesn't neglect the fun and fanciful side of chemistry. The calendar highlights the debut Silly Putty, for instance, the invention of instant mashed potatoes, and the chemistry of hand warmers.

ACS purposely left the remaining days without content, and launched the "365: Chemistry for Life Contest" as an invitation to the public to complete the calendar, and participate in the IYC. Entries should consist of the name of a chemistry-related person, place, innovation or everyday item with a 300-400 word description of the en
