Abstract:
The American Chemical Society (ACS) today released two new videos celebrating the 25th Anniversary of National Chemistry Week (NCW). The videos, from the world's largest scientific society, coincide with the start of this year's NCW, being observed in hundreds of communities around the country. Both videos are available now at BytesizeScience.com.

New American Chemical Society videos celebrate 25 years of National Chemistry Week

Washington, DC | Posted on October 23rd, 2012

One video is a new episode of ACS' award-winning Bytesize Science series. It highlights research behind this year's NCW theme — nanotechnology. The second video is a retrospective on the history of NCW and its 25-year legacy of exciting the public about chemistry.

The Bytesize Science episode features innovative nanotechnology research from the Maryland Nanocenter and the University of Maryland (UMD). Three UMD researchers explain how their work in the nano-scale could lead to better fuel cells, solar cells and super-strong materials made from carbon nanotubes. It provides viewers with a firsthand look into exciting applications of nanotechnology available today, and those that are just around the corner.

The second video features interviews with long-time NCW volunteers and participants. They discuss the program's humble beginnings and its positive impact on the public perception of chemistry, and they share their favorite memories from 25 years of NCW. Both videos were produced by the ACS Office of Public Affairs.
