SCI was established in 1881, by a prominent group of forward thinking Scientists, Inventors and Entrepreneurs with founder members going on to set up major businesses producing many of the daily products we recognise today.
The importance of Chemistry
Chemistry is ubiquitous and underpinning. Without chemistry, there would be no life. Without chemistry, there would be no industry. It is easy to confuse natural chemistry with synthetic chemistry, but they are the same thing. Understanding chemistry and its uses is vital to enable us to exist without destroying the environment we depend on. Many people use chemistry without realising it, and do not understand that the solutions to their problems are often chemical in nature.
