Environmental Problems of Greece from a Chemical Point of View

Greece, owing to its geomorphology and its fragmented structure, has an extremely wide range of envirionments with a vast variety of natural conditions, including high mountainous areas as well as subtropical regions. Over the last century, and especially after the 1960s, a significant move of population toward the coastal areas took place as these areas experienced increased economic development, mainly through tourism, industry, tranport, and agriculture.This expansion and intensification of economic development activities has increased environmental problems and threats to Greece's wildlife, leading to the considerable decrease in the number of many specicies.

The West African Chemical Society: A Catalyst for the Development of African Science

The West African Chemical Society (Société Ouest-Africaine de Chimie [S.O.A.CHIM.]) was established in 1994 by a group of scientists from nine West African countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea Conakry, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, and Togo). The aim of the society is to develop chemical sciences in West Africa, both from an educational and research point of view. To this end, the society uses four means of communicating information: seminars, a monthly information bulletin, the Journal de la Société Ouest-Africaine de Chimie (published twice a year), and the annual S.O.A.CHIM. Congress, the last two of which took place in Cotonou (Benin) in 1998 and Niamey (Niger) in 1999.

Chemistry in Slovenia Reflects Rich History and Advances in Both Industry and Education

Slovenia’s geographic and demographic area has witnessed an extraordinarily rich development of chemical knowledge, education, industry, and use of chemicals and chemical products, mainly because the region that is now Slovenia has been, throughout history, an active crossroads of different economic paths, interests, areas, specific features, and problems.

Chemistry in Argentina

In attempting to weave the tale of chemistry in Argentina, the main problem is the choice of an adequate frame of reference. Of the many possibilities, I have favored a historical approach; because science and technology are essentially historical processes, it seems to be the most appropriate choice. Therefore, this tale is divided into periods of varying length of time that I hope will give a clear picture of how chemistry activities today in Argentina came into being.

An Outlook for Chemistry in Chile in 2000

This article surveys the history of chemistry in Chile as well as the current general aspects of research, human resources, graduate programs, and the main features of the Chilean Chemical Society.

 

No. 6 (November)

Formulating International Ethical Guidelines for Science (ICSU-SCRES)

SCRES focuses part of its present activities on the possibility of formulating international ethical guidelines regulating scientific research. Ethical guidelines have been formulated to regulate activities within various scientific disciplines, and some of these go beyond the national perspective (e.g., the ban on human experimentation without informed consent). Ethics in science has gained increasing relevance in the past decades when the development of science has been very rapid, and traditional values and familiar moral intuitions appear threatened by some discoveries, as the heated debate around, for example, mammal cloning illustrates.
