Chemical Education Xchange


We have heard from many ChemEd X readers that they would like to recieve a monthly newsletter to highlight recent submissions instead of subscribing to the ChemEd X site for email updates. We hope you will enjoy this change. Feel free to contact us with other comments and suggestions for how we can best serve you.
