Analytical Division Contest, 2013

Slide Contest Celebrating the 75th Anniversary

of the ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry

As part of our celebration of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry, students are encouraged to submit a slide recognizing one of the numerous contributions of our field. Submissions from undergraduate or graduate student groups (i.e. ACS student chapters) or individual students are welcome. The slide should focus on one of the following topics:


  • A description of the work of an eminent Analytical Chemist, current or historical
  • A highlight describing the history of a technique or instrument
  • A highlight explaining the application of Analytical Chemistry to a particular problem


Slides meeting these criteria will be displayed at the Analytical Division’s booth at the 2013 Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and on our website


Slides must be in pdf format and can be submitted through the website prior to the February 28, 2013 deadline.


The creators of the best 10 slides will receive a $500 travel award to present an expanded version of their submission as a poster in the Analytical Division poster session at the Fall 2013 ACS National Meeting in Indianapolis, September 8-12. Slides will be evaluated on accuracy, interest level, and visual appeal.
