Working Party on History of Chemistry

Past conferences (2021)

Heritage and History of Chemistry : WPHC Online Event, May 20th 2021

It is our pleasure to share with all of you the video of the webinar, as well as a short report.

We are thankful to the speakers for the excellent talks presented, as well as to the public for their questions and comments.

Hopefully, this event will open new avenues of collaborative projects which can be discussed in future meetings such as the 13th ICHC (Vilnius 2023).
