New Orleans—Southern hospitality welcomed nearly 13,000 scientists here from 24 to 28 March for the 210th national meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS). In return, researchers shared their ideas on topics including ways to take toxic chemicals out of the ceramics production line, push up the catalytic activity of enzyme-plastic hybrids in organic solvents, and drive up student interest in chemistry.
