Chemistry is a big part of our everyday life. We find chemistry in daily life in the foods we eat, the air we breathe, our soap, our emotions and literally every object we can see or touch.

My your specific interest in the IYC 2011 is to increase the interest of the general population in chemistry and in chemistry studies and to link the chemistry issues to other disciplines and to society issues.
