Summary
This book comprises the proceedings from the special symposium "Challenges and Visions: Chemical Research - 2000 and Beyond", sponsored by the American Chemical Society's New York Section and held at The Rockefeller University on October 18, 1997. The symposium was a forum for eminent scientists to predict how chemistry will help meet the social, economic, and environmental challenges of the 21st century. Speakers included five Nobel laureates in chemistry, prominent chemists from academia and industry, and a U.S. congressman. This book will be of interest to anyone concerned about global political, social, and economic changes that are threatening the pace of scientific progress through chemical research
