Chapter in Thailand
The ACS International Chemical Sciences Chapter in Thailand was founded in March of 2011 by ACS members living in Thailand. This chapter pledges to promote and strengthen the interaction in chemistry between the US and Thailand while working in harmony with the Thai Chemical Society.
In 2011 The ACS International Chemical Sciences Chapter in Thailand joined the Education Fair and Exhibition hosted by Siam University at its downtown Bangkok campus. The theme of the fair was “Chemistry for Food and Life,” and the activities were designed to encourage high school students interested in chemistry to understand its importance, its application in daily life, and also to introduce the Thailand Chapter. More than 200 participants including teachers and high school students attended these activities.
