My Name is Sandra Obaid and I’m chemist. My actually job has a little to do with chemistry, but I’m always bounded to my first choice and I follow with great interest all advancements and news in the chemistry.

I’m very happy about the decision of UN to proclaim 2011 the Year of Chemistry. The chemists and the chemical Industry was the more efficient contaminator of our environment, so only we can make a change of this direction and bring more responsibility to all our promises for the future.

I would like to give my contribution to celebrate this year of Chemistry and I look forward to collaborate with other colleagues.
