The Puerto Rico Section of the American Chemical Society is hosting the 73rd Southeastern Regional ACS meeting (SERMACS 2022), which will be held on October 19-22, 2022 in beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico. The theme of the meeting is “CHEMISTRY TRANSCENDING BOUNDARIES FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE”. Our Local Section last hosted this meeting in 2009 with a record number of attendees and this year we are hoping to establish a new record. SERMACS 2022 will be an international event that we are promoting heavily both in the United States and all over Latin America.  The ACS is the world’s largest scientific association with a membership of more than 154,000 chemists, chemical engineers, and others in related professions. Our region encompasses Virginia, Kentucky, and all points south of these states and east of the Mississippi River, including Puerto Rico. We invite you to explore this website for information, news and updates of this historic event.
