Welcome to the ACE

The Association of Chemistry and the Environment (ACE) is a non-profit-making scientific association founded in October 2000 by a group of European scientists. We aim to promote global contact between scientists in academia and research institutes, the commercial sector and social representatives within governmental and regulatory bodies to address environmental problems and to promote education in this area.

We strongly welcome scientists from diverse fields such as atmosphere science, biology, geology, industrial chemistry, medicine, sociology, soil science, toxicology and water science to play an active role within the organisation.

EMEC14 - first announcement

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 14th European Meeting on Environmental Chemistry. EMEC 14 will be held from 4 to7 December 2013 in Budva, Montenegro. This conference is organized by the Chemical Society of Montenegro in cooperation with Association of Chemistry and the Environment.

EMEC14 continues the tradition of previous annual meetings, providing a forum for the exchange of ideas on recent advances in research and development in environmental chemistry and technology and is relevant to people from industry, research and academia concurrently. The scientific program (invited lectures, oral communications and posters) will be arranged in ten thematic sessions:

Atmospheric chemistry
Soil chemistry
Aquatic and marine chemistry
Photochemistry and photocatalysis
Biodegradation and bioremediation
Ecotoxicology and biomarkers
Emerging contaminants
Waste water and solid waste treatment
Analytical methods for environmental science and biomonitoring
Sustainable chemistry

You will find more information on the conference website, which will be continuously updated.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Montenegro. Welcome!!!!

Best regards,
Željko Jaćimović
Conference Chairman

12th International Estuarine Biogeochemistry Symposium

Plymouth University, 30th June – 4th July 2013

The theme of the four-day 12th IEBS Symposium is “An Integrated Approach to Estuarine Biogeochemistry”. We aim to explore what we know, and what we don’t know, about estuarine and coastal biogeochemistry, and evaluate our ability to predict estuarine processes at a time of great natural and man-induced environmental change. Holistic approaches to the biogeochemistry and modelling of estuarine and coastal processes will be addressed, including the controls imposed by physical processes and process-oriented research in biogeochemistry. The Symposium will encompass a wide spectrum of analytes in the estuarine and coastal setting, including metals, radionuclides, organic micropollutants, nutrients and organic carbon, as well as emerging contaminants such as pharmaceuticals and nanoparticles. The Symposium will be of interest to estuarine and marine chemists, geochemists, biologists, ecologists, physicists and modellers, and regulators, policy makers and environmental consultants.

Nutrient Analysis Workshop

Plymouth University, 26-28th June 2012

This hands-on workshop will focus on methods for the determination of the macronutrients nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P). Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about, and discuss, quality issues pertaining to N and P analysis in water samples before embarking on a series of practical sessions. There will be an opportunity to get hand-on experience with techniques for the determination of N and P species in water samples: namely spectrophotometry using a segmented flow analyser (nitrate and phosphate), fluorimetry (ammonium), high temperature catalytic combustion (organic nitrogen). In addition, the application of flow injection techniques will be introduced to present attendees with ideas for building their own system for nutrient determinations.

The course will include lectures on analytical quality control and the cycling of N and P in aquatic systems and there will be ample opportunity for discussion, data analysis and interpretation, and networking.

The fee for this 3-day course will be £450, which includes pre-course materials, daily refreshments and lunch, and a workshop dinner on the 27th June.

For further details contact Dr Mark Fitzsimons (mfitzsimons@plymouth.ac.uk). You can register online.
