About ChemMatters

ChemMatters magazine helps high school students find connections between chemistry and the world around them. Published since 1983 by the American Chemical Society’s Education Division, the magazine engages students with real-world applications of scientific concepts they learn in the classroom.

ChemMatters is published four times during the school year — October, December, February, and April. ACS also publishes a companion Teacher’s Guide, which supplements each issue with background information on articles, activities, classroom demonstrations, and questions for students.
