2011 is International Year of Chemistry

The 63rd General Assembly of the United Nations has adopted a resolution proclaiming 2011 as the International Year of Chemistry, placing UNESCO and the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) at the helm of the event. The year 2011 also marks the 100th anniversary of the awarding of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry to Mme Maria Skłodowska Curie, an event that will also provide an opportunity to celebrate the overall contribution of women to science.
