About ChemMatters

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

ChemMatters is published four times during the school year — October/November, December/January, February/March, and April/May. A companion Teacher’s Guide, which is available for free online, supplements each issue with background information on articles, activities, classroom demonstrations, and questions for students.
