By Committee on Benchmarking the Research Competitiveness

Chemistry performs a key function in conquering illnesses, fixing power difficulties, addressing environmental difficulties, supplying the discoveries that result in new industries, and constructing new fabrics and applied sciences for nationwide security and place of birth safety. despite the fact that, the sector is presently dealing with a very important time of swap and is suffering to place itself to satisfy the wishes of the longer term because it expands past its conventional center towards parts regarding biology, fabrics technological know-how, and nanotechnology.At the request of the nationwide technological know-how starting place and the U.S. division of power, the nationwide examine Council performed an in-depth benchmarking research to gauge the present status of the U.S. chemistry box on this planet. the way forward for U.S. Chemistry study: Benchmarks and demanding situations highlights the most findings of the benchmarking workout.

Teilhard's vision of the past: the making of a method

The Phenomenon of guy, by means of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, has been characterised as metaphysics, poetry, and mysticism-virtually every thing other than what its writer claimed it was once: a only clinical mmoir. Professor O'Connell right here follows up on a nest of clues, exposed first in an early unpublished essay, then within the sequence of essays contained mostly within the imaginative and prescient of the prior.

Participants, with 75 and 83 percent, respectively, of selected speakers from the United States. The virtual congresses in signaling pathways and in vivo imaging also had high representation from the United States, with 69 and 63 percent respectively. The subarea of biocatalysis had 49 percent of selected speakers from the United States. The virtual congresses also showed strength in chemical and structural biology for the United Kingdom and Germany; strength in nucleic acids and functional genomics for the Netherlands; and great strength in biocatalysis for Japan, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands.

Europe 17” includes Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. When data were gathered from different sources, the regional grouping of nations was sometimes inconsistent, hence producing the differences in the nomenclature used for the country groups. 20 CURRENT RESEARCH LEADERSHIP POSITION 21 The assessment begins with an overall view of leadership in chemistry at large, looking broadly at science and engineering (S&E) and chemistry research outputs.

Other countries showing particular leadership and strength in this area are Australia, the Netherlands, Germany, and the United Kingdom. S. chemists contributed 74 percent of the highly cited articles in chemistry education between 1995 and 1999 and 68 percent between 2000 and 2006. S as the leader in chemical education.
