On March 2nd, ACS heads to Chicago for the 2019 Pittcon Conference & Expo – the world’s leading technical program featuring scientists from around the world. ACS will host various events throughout the conference that provide the unique opportunity to engage with cross-functional staff and learn more about the journals and the submission process from the Editors themselves.
Where can you find ACS at Pittcon 2020?
- Stop by Booth #3415 during expo hall hours to meet with staff from ACS Publications, C&EN, and ACS Membership – all in one place. This is your opportunity to get your questions answered about membership, C&EN, and publishing and grab some freebies.
- Attend the Advances in Measurement Science Lectureship Award Symposium on Wednesday, March 4th from 8:30 AM-12:20 PM in Room W183A to hear research presentations from this year’s award winners, and learn more about the 2021 award nomination and selection process. Nominate someone for the 2021 Advances in Measurement Science lectureship award.
- Network at the ACS Reception: Join Division of Analytical Chemistry, Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (JASMS), Analytical Chemistry, Journal of Proteome Research, ACS Sensors on Monday, March 2nd from 6-8 PM in the Burnham Room, located on the second floor of the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago. Join us for a night of hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and networking. RSVP here.
Attend each Measurement Journal’s Individual Symposia to learn about ground-breaking research in each field.
“Chemical Analysis of Energy Materials at the Nanoscale”

ACS Publications looks forward to seeing you in Chicago!
Whether you’re in need of reading material for your journey, or unable to attend but looking out for related resources, check out this list of recommended ACS eBooks.
Applications in Forensic Proteomics: Protein Identification and Profiling
Edited by Eric D. Merkley
Publication date: November 8, 2019
Proteomics is formally defined as the study of the proteome—the set of all proteins expressed in a cell, tissue, or organism—and its changes with changing environmental conditions. In practice, the term proteomics has come to mean the technologies and techniques used to identify and quantitate (in relative or absolute terms) a very large number of proteins (hundreds to thousands) in a single analysis. As the title of this book suggests, the aim is to give a flavor of the various areas of forensics, broadly defined, in which proteomics is poised to make an important impact.
Understanding Lignocellulose: Synergistic Computational and Analytic Methods
Edited by Micholas Dean Smith
Publication date: September 25, 2019
Lignocellulose is the most abundant source of renewable carbon on Earth and has been used by humanity, in one form or another, for millennia. The need to mitigate climate change is ever more pressing and it is necessary to maximize our utilization of renewable and abundant sources of carbon. One solution is to make use of lignocellulose for humanity’s carbon needs. This book aims to serve as an introduction to advanced analytic and computational approaches for studying and using lignocellulose.
Next-Generation Biomanufacturing Technologies
Edited by Navanietha Krishnaraj Rathinam and Rajesh K. Sani
Publication date: December 3, 2019
There is a growing demand for products with highly specific characteristics including stereochemical characteristics, especially in the biomedical, food, and agribiotechnology sectors. Biomanufacturing strategies help to precisely tailor molecules for different applications with desired properties and functions. This book aims to introduce advanced biomanufacturing technologies to produce biofuels and electrofuels, enzymes, pre- and probiotics, biocompatible nanomaterials, pharmaceuticals, biofuels, and biopolymers to the readers.
Sex, Smoke, and Spirits: The Role of Chemistry
Edited by Brian Guthrie, Jonathan D. Beauchamp, Andrea Buettner, Stephen Toth, and Michael C. Qian
Publication date: September 25, 2019
Pesticides in Surface Water: Monitoring, Modeling, Risk Assessment, and Management
Edited by Kean S. Goh, Jay Gan, Dirk F. Young, and Yuzhou Luo
Publication date: March 26, 2019
The increasing use of newer pesticides such as the pyrethroids, neonicotinoids, and fipronil has resulted in their ubiquitous occurrence in surface waters and led to observations of adverse effects on aquatic organisms. The widespread contamination has stimulated active discussions and research on monitoring, aquatic toxicology, risk assessment, modeling, mitigation, and regulatory efforts to minimize contamination and protect environmental integrity. In this book, we cover comprehensively the latest knowledge, information, and technology to measure, assess, model and manage pesticide contamination in surface water.
