Discussions at workshops and other events are often published in workshop summaries, websites, newsletters, and other formats to preserve and make publicly accessible the information or discussions from the event.
Materials Science and Technology: Challenges for the Chemical Sciences in the 21st Century (2003)
The report assesses the current state of chemistry and chemical engineering at the interface with materials science and identifies challenges for research. Recent advances are blurring the distinction between chemistry and materials science and are enabling the creation of new materials that, to date, have only been predicted by theory. These advances include a greater ability to construct materials from molecular components, to design material... More >>
Challenges for the Chemical Sciences in the 21st Century - National Security and Homeland Defense (2002)
This is the first report of seven in the Challenges for the Chemical Sciences in the 21st Century series. The report is based on discussions and presentations at a workshop, and is intended to help scientists and funding agencies set short- and long-term research agendas. It focuses on the challenges for chemists and chemical engineers with respect to threat reduction, preparation, situational awareness, and threat neutralization an... More >>
Carbon Management: Implications for R&D in the Chemical Sciences and Technology (2001)
A report to the Chemical Sciences Roundtable, this collection of discussions was originally organized to address the concern that policies might be implemented in the realm of carbon management. The main focus of this workshop and the subsequent report was to determine what might be the best way to prepare if certain policies regarding carbon dioxide output or fossil fuel consumption were implemented in the future.
