Department: Science & Technology

Hawaii in December, with chemistry. What could be better?

So when the 5th International Chemical Congress of Pacific Basin Societies-Pacifichem 2005, for short-came to Honolulu in mid-December, so did more than 11,000 attendees from 70 countries. This was a record: The previous Pacifichem, held five years ago, drew some 9,000 participants from 58 countries.

The 2005 conference, which was sponsored by chemical societies in the U.S., Japan, Korea, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia, offered oral . . .
