About the Royal Chemistry Society
With a heritage that spans from the granting of it first charter in 1848, The Royal Chemistry Society is the UK’s professional learned society concerned with advancing chemistry as a science, developing its applications, and disseminating chemical knowledge.
The 1980 update to its charter states that the RSC is dedicated to the “the general advancement of chemical science and its application and for that purpose:
- to foster and encourage the growth and application of such science by the dissemination of chemical knowledge;
- to establish, uphold and advance the standards of qualification, competence and conduct of those who practise chemistry as a profession;
- to serve the public interest by acting in an advisory, consultative or representative capacity in matters relating to the science and practice of chemistry; and
- to advance the aims and objectives of members of the Society so far as they relate to the advancement of the science or practice of chemistry.”
