Each year in the Colors of Chemistry calendar, we attempt 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.
New in 2010, the Colors of Chemistry calendar is available as a free interactive iPhone app. All the colorful photography, informative descriptions, and relevant abstracts from our databases are included in the new digital format. You can also create custom reminders that automatically sync with the new web calendar application available at www.cas.org. Take the 2010 Colors of Chemistry calendar on the road and stay organized at home and away!
