SCI ® : where science meets business


SCI® (The Society of Chemical Industry) is a global network of innovators, formed in 1881 by prominent scientists, inventors and entrepreneurs of their day, who went on to form the companies, processes and products that have propelled society forward ever since. Today, as in 1881, we are the place where science meets business.
