Chemists Celebrate Earth Day

The April 2016 issue of the Journal of Chemical Education is now available  to subscribers. In honor of Earth Day 2016, the April issue includes a variety of content that provides ideas and suggestions for bringing environmental chemistry to students on the topics of: water quality; climate science and greenhouse gases; atmospheric chemistry; sustainability, green chemistry, and environmental awareness; and energy storage technology. Also in the issue are articles on: outreach and public understanding; teaching organic chemistry; physical chemistry; exploring biochemistry with proteins; research experiences in the laboratory; educational resources.

Environmental Chemistry

Cover: Earth Day

Chemists Celebrate Earth Day is an ACS annual event that seeks to bring international focus to environmental topics, such as clean air, water, and energy, to illustrate the positive role chemistry plays in understanding and preserving the Earth. Environmental chemistry engages students of all levels in learning new chemistry concepts by relating chemistry to their daily lives as well as heightening awareness of environmental issues.
