Abstract: The science of chemistry underlies
all of our work in the environmental area and in the new technologies
exemplified by materials science and molecular physics. For these
areas to progress, chemistry must continue to be a creative and innovative
source of new ideas rather than just a handmaiden for currently identified
problems in these closely allied areas of study.

and Products, Boulder,Colorado, USA, 9-13 June 2001. Other presentations
