New in 2019!

A year of C&EN content around the International Year of the Periodic Table

“1869 is considered as the year of discovery of the Periodic System by Dmitri Mendeleev. 2019 will be the 150th anniversary of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements and has therefore been proclaimed the ‘International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT2019)’ by the United Nations General Assembly and UNESCO.”

C&EN will be busy celebrating IYPT in 2019 and collecting stories from the chemistry community through its features, interviews, social media campaigns, quizzes and more. Sponsorship opportunities are available for a host of this content, series, or social contests.

Browse our list of preliminary topics below, and get in touch with us here to request more information on how to associate your brand with one of the biggest celebrations in the chemical sciences.
