The Molecular Anthology Project
Molecules Impacting New Zealand Society
Forget the All Blacks; it’s time to pick a different line up! Who do you think are New Zealand’s Molecular all stars?
Molecules are made up of at least two atoms held together by chemicals bonds, but despite their tiny size, their discovery and uses can change the history of an entire country.
A quest is being held during the 2011 International Year of Chemistry to create a list of molecules or materials that have changed New Zealand Society. The Manawatu Branch of the New Zealand Institute of Chemistry is encouraging people all over the country to take part in this discussion. Students and members are welcome to participate.
Submissions are open until 31 May. Once submissions have closed a short list of 10 candidates will be compiled and voting will take place on the website to rank the Top10 with the results to be announced at the NZIC Conference in December in 2011.
To have your say visit http://molecularanthology.massey.ac.nz/.Submit a molecule or material that has changed or probably will change New Zealand society. Please provide a short description/justification and, if possible, a picture that we can put on the web-site.
