Celebrate National Chemistry Week 2021 with “Fast or Slow…Chemistry Makes It Go!” Resources from JACS Au

National Chemistry Week (NCW) is an annual community-based event which unites ACS local sections, business, schools, and individuals by communicating and promoting the value of chemistry in everyday life.

This year, National Chemistry Week is being celebrate October 17-23 2021, with the theme, “Fast or Slow…Chemistry Makes It Go!”, which focuses on exploring reaction rates. ACS members and chemistry enthusiasts celebrate NCW by coordinating events and communicating the importance of chemistry. Read more about NCW.

Explore a collection of articles from JACS Au below, which we hope will help to not only illustrate key chemical concepts and the importance of chemistry, but also motivate students and researchers to connect chemistry to our everyday lives, through topics such as enzymes, plant conversion to fuels, plastics upcycling, and more.
