The Federation of Asian Chemical Societies (FACS) is a federation of 32 chemical societies of countries and territories in the Asia Pacific, aiming to promote the advancement and appreciation of chemistry and the interests of professional chemists in the region.
As of today, all activities and updates from the Federation of Asian Chemical Societies, as well as cutting-edge science articles, publications on the history of chemistry, interviews, and essays, will be available on ScienceOpen, as AsiaChem, the official magazine of FACS, has joined our network.
The AsiaChem magazine echoes the Federation of Asian Chemical Societies’ voice (FACS).
This biannual, free-access magazine contains a wide range of articles on cutting-edge science, recent discoveries in the fields, interviews, and anything else that might be of interest to a broad audience in the chemical sciences.
ScienceOpen is constantly trying to include a variety of research perspectives and promote scientific knowledge through an interdisciplinary viewpoint, where researchers and institutions from different countries and regions around the world are able to disseminate and celebrate their discoveries.
FACS’ work focuses on Asian discoveries and texts written by scientists who were born in Asian countries or are currently working in Asia. The eight FACS countries are represented in AsiaChem’s various issues and publications, including Australia, China, India, Israel, Jordan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Turkey.
Discovering AsiaChem’s latest issue
Most global challenges, including global warming, food for everybody, the race for sustainable energy, water quality, dwindling raw materials, and health problems, are chemical problems by nature. Therefore, humankind cannot meet these challenges without the chemical sciences and will not solve any of these problems without global cooperation.Prof.Ehud Keinan – Editor-in-Chief of AsiaChem
AsiaChem’s first two issues are now available on ScienceOpen. Below are some of the main articles from the most recent edition, with a focus on Japan, the history of chemistry, and the most recent developments in this field coming from there.
- Chemistry in Japan
- A History of Chemistry in Japan, 1820-1955
- Science Diplomacy: where chemistry is crucial
- Peptide Cyclization Methodologies Amenable to in Vitro Display
- The Chemical Society of Japan: Striving for Chemical Sciences and Technology for a Sustainable Human Society
