Springer is committed to the dissemination of high quality scientific information as widely as possible to all groups who can use it. As Editorial Director of Springer's global chemistry publishing program I share the objectives of IYC and view chemistry as the science that is central to life sciences, medicine, fuels, energy, materials environment, food and more.
