Organic Division

Organic Division currently has 8,700 members based in industry and education.  Its main objective is to encourage and promote advances in the field of organic chemistry, interpreted in its broadest sense.  In particular, the Division stimulates and supports many local, national and international meetings, symposia and conferences on topics of interest to organic chemists.  

The Division embraces the interdisciplinary nature of science and works with other RSC Divisions and Forms to encourage the development of new and emerging areas of science.
