Nominations still open for ACS Award in Chromatography
The nomination deadline for the 2015 ACS Award in Chromatography has been extended to Friday, December 13, 2013, in an effort to get additional nominations. The award has less than five nominees which makes the award ineligible to be presented in 2015. Division members are encouraged to nominate a deserving individual for this award. Nomination and supporting information as well as a detailed description of the ACS Award in Chromatography are available online. Please submit nominations here. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact Tiffany Williams at the ACS.

Welcome to the web site of the Division of Analytical Chemistry. We extend a special welcome to Scouts attending the 2013 National Scout Jamboree!
The Division is playing a part at the Jamboree in West Virginia as a co-sponsor of an activity for the Chemistry Merit Badge. This is just one example of the greater good enabled when we combine efforts as Division members to make a collective difference.
As analytical chemists we make a difference in so many ways. Our measurements ensure safe water, air, food and medicines. Our field continues to push forward the frontiers of biomedicine and energy research. We enable both commerce and national security.
This month the Division recognizes the outstanding undergraduate students selected by chemistry departments across the country. A listing of the 2013 recipients of the Divisions' Undergraduate Analytical Chemistry awards can be found on the Division website.
If you will be attending the ACS meeting in Indianapolis, please join us for a 75th anniversary celebration reception Tuesday evening as well as two more special events. On Tuesday morning a session on key analytical chemistry developments has been organized by Dennis Evans, featuring overviews from Milos Novotny, Gary Hieftje, Graham Cooks, and Bill Heineman. That afternoon we will honor our Division award winners Charles Wilkins, David Walt, Andrew Ewing, Peter Carr, and Ryan Bailey,
I encourage you to find an opportunity to become involved in Division activities and committees. If you are interested in volunteering, just send me an email at email@example.com and we will help to connect you with an activity that suits your talents and interests.
