JMA Pilani Celebrates International Year of Periodic Table IYPT and Centenary Year of IUPAC
JMA established in the year 2004 at Pilani which is considered as Oasis in the desert state of Rajasthan has set a rich tradition of celebrating various days of national as well as international importance on a regular basis. Chemistry can be defined as a discipline encompassing all areas which are of interest to chemists and where molecular science makes significant contributions. The rich and diverse world of modern chemistry encompasses remarkable intellectual accomplishments, scientific creativity and originality and the generation of new knowledge.
Considering the fact that chemistry indeed promotes sustainable development as well as provides solutions to global challenges in energy, education, agriculture and health, on 20 December 2017, during its 74th Plenary Meeting, the United Nations (UN) General Assembly 72nd Session proclaimed 2019 as the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT 2019). Chemical Elements play a vital role in every one’s daily lives and are crucial for humankind, planet as well as for industry.
Periodic Table is a unique tool enabling scientists to predict the appearance and properties of matter on Earth and in the Universe and its development is one of the most significant achievements in science and a uniting scientific concept, with broad implications in Astronomy, Chemistry, Physics, Biology and other natural sciences. IYPT 2019 coincides with the 150th anniversary of the discovery of the Periodic System by Dmitry Mendeleev in 1869. In addition IYPT 2019 also coincides with the Centenary of International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry IUPAC thus making it a stellar constellation.
IUPAC serves the international scientific endeavor in the dual function of a basic science and a mission-oriented Union. The Union is in a unique position to contribute to the central interdisciplinary chemical sciences. Strengthening international chemistry, striving towards inspiring high standards of excellence and relevance in academic and industrial research and promoting the service of chemistry to society and to global issues, these are the visions that shape IUPAC’s activities towards the 21st century.
On 23 Dec 2019 JMA Pilani organized a function to celebrate IYPT 2019 and IUPAC100. Chemistry teacher Ms Chitralekha shared above details and highlighted element 101 Mendelevium named after Dmitri Mendeleev, father of the periodic table of the chemical elements and 106 Seaborgium named after the American nuclear chemist Glenn T. Seaborg. Principal Mrs Booma Natarajan who herself is a passionate Chemistry teacher shared interesting details about various Nobel prizes in chemistry which included USA Germany and UK topping the list, Frederic Sanger winning twice for Chemistry and 5 women winners Marie Curie, Irene Curie, Doroth Hodgkin, Ada Yonath and Francis Arnold (chemical engineer !!). .
