Global Interest Groups: Chemistry Interest Group
Alan J. Jones




Participation in this interest group is open to all interested parties. If you are not already a member, make sure you are signed in to your SETAC account then click "Join Group” near the top of this page.


The Chemistry Interest Group (CIG) strives to improve and sustain the inherent interdisciplinary nature of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) organization in members and expertise. We increase awareness of and relevance for environmental chemistry through scientific, education and communication opportunities for chemists in the environmental field. As a global interest group, the CIG will offer opportunities to its members to interact and address global chemistry topics. The CIG strives to improve opportunities to expand member's global network.

Topics of interest for the CIG

The Chemistry Interest Group (CIG) encourages activities on all topics that are related to chemistry and the environment. Example areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • scientific and technological developments in analytical techniques for measuring concentrations of contaminants, including sampling and extraction technologies
  • development of scientific insights into processes such as sorption, degradation and transport of contaminants in the environment
  • development of scientific insights into chemical exposure in toxicological studies ranging from cellular assays to whole organism and ecosystems
  • development of methods to predict fate, exposure and effects of contaminants, for example via QSAR

John R. Kucklick wrote on the Global Interest Groups: Chemistry Interest Group wall: Nominations needed for the SETAC North America New Chemist Award!! Give your non-SETAC chemist colleagues a chance to attend the SETAC North America meeting. The award consists of complementary registrations at the next SNA annual meeting for the award winner and up to 3 of his/her students as well as lodging accommodations. The award winner also presents his/her work through a presentation at the annual meeting, as do the students. These individuals are encouraged to attend and participate in other SNA annual meeting activities. Please send nominations to John Kucklick (john.kucklick@nist.gov) by April 5, 2017

Elin M. Ulrich wrote on the Global Interest Groups: Chemistry Interest Group wall: The 37th International Symposium on Halogenated Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) - DIOXIN 2017 (www.Dioxin2017.org) will be held in Vancouver, Canada August 20-25, 2017. This year, the theme of Dioxin 2017 will focus on communicating scientific discoveries by recognizing the contributions of the early pioneers and promoting the work of young researchers. The Dioxin Conference will have at least 5 parallel sessions throughout the meeting. The program will include sessions on new and emerging persistent organic pollutants such as halogenated flame retardants and perfluorinated chemicals.
