Submit a project for the 75th anniversary!
The Division is interested in supporting outreach projects that will inform the chemistry community and the public about the history and impact of analytical chemistry. The Division will provide up to $500 each for up to five projects at undergraduate institutions and up to five projects at graduate institutions. Applications may be submitted by a group of institutions, such as a regional Younger Chemists Committee or Student Affiliates group. Applications must be submitted by June 1, 2013. Details are here.
Anniversary symposium in Indianapolis!
The coming ACS National Meeting will feature the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Division of Analytical Chemistry. Dennis Peters has lined up a superb symposium with modern luminaries in analytical chemistry presenting their historical overviews of the fields of Chromatography (Milos Novotny), Spectroscopy (Gary Hieftje), Mass Spectrometry (Graham Cooks) and Electrochemistry (Bill Heinemann). In addition, Dr Peters will provide some general comments about the history of the division. The symposium is scheduled for Tuesday morning, September 10. More details about the Division's plans for the celebration will be posted here and on Facebook soon!

Message to Membership, November, 2012
Welcome to the Division of Analytical Chemistry webpage, the virtual home for more than 8500 members. Your membership connects you with other members and supports our profession through the Divisionís many activities.
In the upcoming year, the Analytical Division will celebrate the 75th anniversary of its founding in 1938. Programming for 2013 is already underway, thanks to our Program Chair Thom Rossi. Details of the Pittcon in Philadelphia (March 17-21) and Spring ACS Meeting programs will be announced soon on this home page.
Our graduate fellowship program encourages basic research in the field of analytical chemistry, promotes the growth of analytical chemistry in academic institutions and industry, and provides recognition of future leaders in the field of analytical chemistry. The Division gratefully acknowledges Eli Lilly and Agilent Technologies (sponsors of 9-month fellowships) and the Eastman Chemical Company and the Society of Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh for sponsorship of summer fellowships.
We also appreciate your continued support of the Division by renewing your membership (only $16 a year for ACS members) and by recruiting new members. If you are not an ACS member you can be a member of the Division for only $20 a year. Please get involved in your Division: like us on Facebook, volunteer to serve on one of the Divisionís many committees , or join us for top-flight science and networking at a National Meeting.
