    Welcome to the Detroit Section of the American Chemical Society.

    The Detroit Section of the ACS is a volunteer based organization representing over 1,400 chemical professionals in southeastern Michigan. Our goal is provide services that aid members to enjoy a rewarding career as scientific professions, using their skills to advance the chemistry enterprise for the benefit of people and the environment.

    The Detroit Section needs speakers for our monthly programs. We have different forums for the presentations so the material does not have to be “state-of the art,” highly technical research. If you have an interesting hobby or want to present some of your work which is science related we would like to hear from you. Many of the most popular talk are on the topic of food or a hobby. Remember, chemistry can be fun!
