As chemists create new molecules and materials, processes, and computational methods, the long-term application of these is often unclear. Nevertheless, these discoveries in diverse areas of chemistry will impact the inventions and developments of tomorrow. This theme embraces the exciting developments in the field of chemistry, often before practical applications are realized. With a focus on fundamental science, the topics in this theme span the traditional fields of chemistry.
