Chemists Celebrate Earth Day—The Wonders of Water

The April 2014 issue of the Journal of Chemical Education is now available to subscribers. The April issue features water and environmental chemistry.

Chemists Celebrate Earth Day is an ACS annual event that seeks to bring international focus to environmental topics, such as clean air, water, and energy, to illustrate the positive role chemistry plays in preserving Earth. The 2014 theme—The Wonders of Water—features the unique properties of water that are crucial for life and a cleaner environment.
