Divisions and Interest Groups

The RSC Divisions and Interest Groups play an important role in contributing to the many RSC activities in support of the chemical sciences.

The RSC has nine Divisions, which cover nine broad fields and aspects of chemistry. These support the development, research and education and training in their respective field of the chemical sciences and provide regular feedback to the RSC.

Interest Groups are member driven and each group is devoted to a specific area or application of the chemical sciences. In addition to arranging scientific meetings, several Interest Groups produce their own newsletters and many provide bursaries to help students attend conferences.
