The official book of the EuCheMS societies for the International Year of Chemistry covers over 50 of the most influential women in chemistry,  Including Nobel prize winner Marie Curie.

European Women in Chemistry highlights the remarkable stories of fifty women who have been pioneers as women in science and in the vanguard of the development of chemistry. It looks not only at the scientific story, but the personal sacrifices and societal opposition that many of these great women scientists had to overcome to make their mark in the early days of science.

"One of the reasons for 2011 being chosen as the International Year of Chemistry is the centennial commemoration of the Nobel Prize awarded to Maria Sklodowska Curie. This centenary led to the idea of a book to show the range of female chemists active across Europe in what many would suggest is still a male-dominated profession." Jan Apotheker, Livia Simon Sarkadi
