Dear colleagues,


We are very pleased to invite you to the 17th Arabic Chemistry Conference that is taking place for the second time in Tunisia (first time was in 1982).


In today’s modern world, chemistry is still often viewed in a harsh, negative light. Many of these negative perceptions were created in the late 1980s and early 1990s, when public distrust of chemical companies was at an all-time high. In 1965, 55% of the public held a favourable opinion of chemical companies. By 1990, this changed to only 14% (Chemical Manufacturers Association report).


In the twenty-plus years following this statistic, things have changed in the chemical industry. The implementation of rules involving responsible care has greatly improved environmental, health, safety, and security performance of the chemical manufacturing industry.

Chemists all over the world should strive to continually improve their developing processes, limit waste, and think as environment friendly as possible.


We all agree that the future needs lower energy use and energy costs. People think of innovation as the creation of brand-new things. But if you take basic molecules and arrange them in the right way, you can do a lot with what already exists. Materials scientists should look at the periodic table of elements not as a chart full of symbols and numbers but as a vast molecular pantry that allows a near-infinite number of recipes.


We look forward to welcoming you in Hammamet, the most famous touristic center and resort in Tunisia. The city joins traditional ambiance and modern infrastructure.
