What's new in green chemistry?

WASHINGTON Green bullets? Green sneakers? How about the U. S. debut of a green insect repellent? Tune into the just-launched ACS News Service's Weblog (http://acsnewsservice.typepad.com/) for those items and other news-grabbers from the 10th annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference, being held this week.

A weblog, or blog as it's often called, is a journal on the Web. Weblogs deal with a range of topics and focus on groups of individuals with different interests and needs. The ACS News Service Weblog will bring journalists sights, sounds and newsbytes from selected major scientific conferences, among other events. We hope you will find the blog useful as a resource when researching stories and seeking expert sources.


The American Chemical Society is a nonprofit organization, chartered by the U.S. Congress, with a multidisciplinary membership of more than 158,000 chemists and chemical engineers. It publishes numerous scientific journals and databases, convenes major research conferences and provides educational, science policy and career programs in chemistry. Its main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio.
