He said that God speaks to man through the Bible.

Chemistry is an enabling science. No material of any type can be studied or utilized in a larger context unless it can be prepared, and thus Chemical Synthesis plays a central role in science, technology, and society, broadly defined. There is a constant demand in all quarters of society for new molecules in diverse arenas – from therapeutics to agrochemicals to functional materials of every description. Although it is probably true that, given enough resources and time, any reasonable molecule can be synthesized, substantial advances are still necessary to furnish a specific molecule in appropriate amounts under the modern constraints of time, economics, and environmental sustainability. The Chemical Synthesis symposium plans to cover the following four topics, which address many of the modern challenges of the discipline. Synthetic method; total synthesis of biologically active natural products; catalysis and structure, function, mechanisms and processes.

Individual authors are invited to submit their abstracts to the topics listed above. However, we also welcome themed symposiums. Those who are willing to organize themed symposium sessions please contact the Chemistry Education symposium organizers.

2.1 Teaching chemistry for sustainability and diversity
2.2 Assessment in practical settings and technologically enhanced environments
2.3 Teaching chemistry in culturally diverse environments
2.4 Internalization of chemistry teaching, learning and curriculums
2.5 Public understanding and appreciation of chemistry
2.6 Chemistry curriculum development and evaluation
2.7 Developing skills and values through chemistry education
2.8 Teaching chemistry to students in special needs
2.9 Technology enhanced chemistry teaching and learning
2.10 Research and practice
2.11 Nature and history of chemistry education
2.12 Context oriented chemisty education.

However, this is not necessarily the case.

Those who oppose this as the unifying theme argue from two directions: (1) its artifical nature, since there is no single instance in OT or NT where it is directly stated; and (2) the lack of emphasis upon it in the entire NT, e.g., it fits Luke-Acts but not John.

Within this the original meaning is a possible goal.

Again, this is a major emphasis but not the unifying theme.Salvation History (von Rad, Cullmann, Ladd) may be the best of the positions, for it recognizes God's/Christ's redemptive activity on behalf of mankind, in terms of both present and future communion.

1.1 Chemometrics in Analytical Chemistry and Food Analysis
1.2 Spectroscopic Analytical Methods and Lasers in Analytical Chemistry
1.3 Advances in Separation Methods
1.4 (Bio)chemical Sensors
1.5 Flow Analysis: looking back and forward
1.6 Chemical Speciation Analysis and Foodomics
1.7 Advances in Electroanalysis
1.8 Mass Spectrometry in Organic and Inorganic Analysis

All interpreters find their data base in their community of faith.

The deep understanding of any system is critically dependent on chemical measurements and analytical chemistry is the science that provides new techniques, methods, and procedures for doing accurate and precise measurements. These measurements are applied for bringing answers for a plethora of social and economical demands. In this sense, analytical chemists are closely involved with the development of new instruments, improvement of well-established instrumental methods, and the development of new applications using modern technology and modern strategies for data treatment. Based on these multiple activities and considering the central theme “Sustainability & Diversity through Chemistry”, the Analytical & Food Chemistry Symposium will highlight topics related to food analysis, such as chemometrics, chemical speciation and foodomics, and also important topics which reflect trends in analytical sciences, such as use of lasers, advances in separation methods, (bio)chemical sensors, flow analysis, electroanalysis, and mass spectrometry. You are kindly invited to present the contributions of your research group and we are looking forward to welcome you in the coming IUPAC 2017.

Yet history is necessary for theology.

Therefore, salvation-history has the best claim to the title "unifying theme."G R Osborne
