American Chemical Society

ACS Full Form-

ACS Full Form is Amer­i­can Chem­i­cal Soci­ety. It is the world’s largest sci­en­tif­ic soci­ety and also a source of sci­en­tif­ic infor­ma­tion. It is in the fore­front of the chem­istry enter­prise that is glob­al and a spe­cial­ist home for chemists and relat­ed pro­fes­sion­als . It’s based in the USA and its pres­i­dent is Alli­son A. Camp­bell.


ACS is a vision­ary and dynam­ic orga­ni­za­tion which intends to improve people?s lives. Its job is to advance the chem­istry enter­prise and its pro­fes­sion­als for the ben­e­fit of Earth and indi­vid­u­als.acs full form

What ACS Can

  • Pub­lish­es sci­en­tif­ic jour­nals and data­bas­es
  • Con­venes major research con­fer­ences
  • Pro­vides edu­ca­tion­al and career pro­grams in chem­istry
  • Pro­vides grants for research in oil and relat­ed areas
  • Edu­cates the gen­er­al pub­lic pol­i­cy mak­ers and gen­er­al pub­lic about the impor­tance of chem­istry
  • Spon­sors Numer­ous inter­na­tion­al activ­i­ties such as joint con­fer­ences with chem­i­cal soci­eties

In the Unit­ed States, it has 185 local sec­tions which allow mem­bers to :

  • Join with chemists and relat­ed pro­fes­sion­als with­in their geo­graph­i­cal area
  • Boost their pro­fes­sion­al growth by engag­ing in pro­grams in their town or city
  • Boost the pub­lic Com­pre­hen­sion of chem­istry with­in their own com­mu­ni­ties

In the fed­er­al lev­el, the Soci­ety enables mem­bers to par­tic­i­pate in 33 spe­cial­ty branch­es such as food and agri­cul­ture, indus­tri­al and engi­neer­ing chem­istry etc.. Mem­bers are helped by these divi­sions :

  • Become aware of lat­est devel­op­ments in their own areas of exper­tise
  • Mon­i­tor growth in sim­i­lar areas and com­mu­ni­ty with col­leagues
  • Con­tribute to the growth and recog­ni­tion of their sci­en­tif­ic field

It rep­re­sents its glob­al mem­ber­ship and more than 140 coun­tries exceeds 24,000. Around 60% con­tent pub­lished in ACS jour­nals and approx­i­mate­ly 50 per­cent of the mate­r­i­al orig­i­nates out­side the USA.(Read Also : AD Full Form)

Other Initiatives

  • Project SEED : it’s an edu­ca­tion pro­gram of ACS that pro­vides bril­liant but eco­nom­i­cal­ly dis­ad­van­taged high school stu­dents a chance to expand their edu­ca­tion and career out­look.
  • ACS Schol­ars Appli­ca­tion : It is a schol­ar­ship pro­gram which pro­vides schol­ar­ships and assis­tance to minor­i­ty stu­dents who want to earn a degree in chem­istry or relat­ed fields.
  • Advanc­ing Chem­istry Teach­ing : This pro­gram is designed for the pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment of sci­ence teach­ers. It helps instruc­tor present chem­istry in the class­room at a bet­ter way.
  • Green Chem­istry Edu­ca­tion and Out­reach : it’s an start of ACS to exe­cute the green chem­istry and engi­neer­ing prin­ci­ples to all facets of the chem­i­cal busi­ness.
