Chemistry's Contributions to Humanity—A Feasibility Study

Initiated in July 2003, the objective of this project, titled “Chemistry’s Contributions to Humanity—A Feasibility Study,” is “to evaluate the feasibility of developing a Web site that chronicles historical innovations in chemistry that have contributed to the improvement of human life.”

The first task in this project was to assess what information on this topic was available to the general public through publications, Web sites, and special events. As part of this process, the task group sent letters to over 40 organizations world wide to solicit input.

At this time the task group has identified and compiled a first list of books, pamphlets, and Web sites that contain information on the theme of chemical contributions to society. This listing is by no means complete; the task group is soliciting help from all members and the community at large to augment this list or critique it from the standpoint of what is included. See Web address below for list of documents.

For more information, contact the Task Group Chairman Edwin P. Przybylowicz <eprzy@rochester.rr.com>.
