‘Colors of Chemistry’ calendar

Some news for those interested in any/all aspects of colour:

Each year in the Colors of Chemistry calendar, CAS attempts to answer intriguing scientific questions with information from the CAS databases. This year, we answered questions on topics ranging from environmentally friendly fireworks to glowing fuel rods in nuclear reactors; from promising anti-cancer agents in redwood trees to distinct forms of iron oxide on the surface of Mars.

Reflecting our ongoing efforts to be more environmentally responsible, the 2010 Colors of Chemistry calendar is now available in new digital formats. Download the entire 2010 calendar as a high-resolution PDF or access the new interactive web calendar. Images from the 2010 Colors of Chemistry calendar are also available as wallpaper for your desktop and in a screen saver application.
