CHAINS2011 (Chemistry As INnovating Science) is the largest chemical conference in the Netherlands ever.

On 28, 29 & 30 November 2011 The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) in cooperation with the KNCV organizes the largest chemical conference in the Netherlands ever: CHAINS2011 (Chemistry As INovating Science).
