The Italian Chemical Society (SCI)

The Italian Chemical Society, officially founded in 1909, and located in Rome, has about 5 000 members, coming from the academic, scientific, and industrial worlds. It is the greatest scientific non-medical society in Italy. The society is organized into Scientific Divisions corresponding to areas of Chemistry, Sections connected to the different regions of Italy, and Groups related to chemical themes. Its primary aim is to disseminate and promote the chemical culture by establishing relationships between chemists and general society through journals, a web site, conferences and publications.
