American Chemical Society

The American Chemical Society, (ACS) was formed in 1876 and is headquartered in Washington D.C. ACS is a professional association with over 160,000 members comprised of all degree levels. ACS supports scientific inquiry in the field chemistry, chemical engineering and related fields. ACS publishes current discover news on its Web site and publishes various journals including The Journal of the American Chemical Society. The Chemical Abstracts Service is a funding resource for ACS. The Chemical & Engineering News is a weekly publication sent to all of its members. ACS certifies undergraduate programs in chemistry at the college and university level. ACS has fought against open-access to scientific abstracts. ACS publishes ACS Nano, Chemical Research in Toxicology, Crystal Growth & Design, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces and more journals. ACS allows access to its Pressroom/Press Pac and provides a brief synopsis of timely and interesting new research. There is a charge for the full article and abstract.

Hi Tech & Innovation

Preventing vehicle crashes by learning from insects

Despite only about 25% of car travel happening after dark, almost half of fatal accidents occur at night. As our vehicles become more advanced and even autonomous, the ways of detecting and avoiding these collisions must ...

Producing 'green' energy from living plant 'bio-solar cells'

Though plants can serve as a source of food, oxygen and décor, they're not often considered to be a good source of electricity. But by collecting electrons naturally transported within plant cells, scientists can generate ...

Energy & Green Tech

Generating electricity from store-bought, double-sided tape

Along with bitterly cold temperatures, winter usually brings dry air and the occasional zap of static electricity. Those shocks might be annoying, but researchers are working to harness that otherwise wasted energy with triboelectric ...

Putting the brakes on lithium-ion batteries to prevent fires

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are used to power everything from smart watches to electric vehicles, thanks to the large amounts of energy they can store in small spaces. When overheated, however, they're prone to catching ...

Clear window coating could cool buildings without using energy

As climate change intensifies summer heat, demand is growing for technologies to cool buildings. Now, researchers report in ACS Energy Letters that they have used advanced computing technology and artificial intelligence ...

Electronics & Semiconductors

Printable circuits that can work on fabric, plastic and even fruit

Remember iron-on decals? All you had to do was print something out on special paper with a home printer, then transfer it onto a T-shirt using an iron. Now, scientists have developed a very similar scheme, but instead of ...

Disposable electronics on a simple sheet of paper

Discarded electronic devices, such as cell phones, are a fast-growing source of waste. One way to mitigate the problem could be to use components that are made with renewable resources and that are easy to dispose of responsibly. ...
