Mission Statement

The mission of the Separation Science & Technology Subdivision of the Industrial &Engineering Chemistry Division of the American Chemical Society is to promote the science and technology of separations by serving as a focal point for communication between scientists and engineers, both those engaged in day-to-day separations problems and those searching for new methods and materials for the separations of tomorrow. Our primary focus is on the development of a diverse portfolio of symposia dedicated to topical issues in separations, typically, but not exclusively, associated with national and regional American Chemical Society meetings.

Programming

The Separation Science & Technology Subdivision takes pride in the quality and quantity of programming organized and presided over by its members. Pending SS&T Symposia are maintained on this site by the Programming Committee. The committee is glad to accept your ideas for symposia topical material.

Matching Funds are Available from the SS&T Subdivision in Support of Symposia

One mission of the Subdivision is to foster high quality programming activities. In support of this objective, funds are available from the Subdivision to support separations-related programming activities at ACS national and regional meetings as well as other international symposia. Organizers interested in obtaining matching funds should contact any member of the Executive Committee for more details, including selection criteria.

Membership

Interdisciplinary Approach

 The primary mission of the Separations Science & Technolgy Subdivision is the dissemination of current and pertinent information to professionals engaged in separations activities across the broad spectrum of chemistry and chemical engineering

Eligibility 

As a professional actively engaged in work that relies on effective separations technology, you are invited to join the Subdivision. Current members use separations technology on both bench and industrial scales in such diverse areas as separation and purification of organic and inorganic chemicals, environmental restoration, isotope separations, waste management, biochemical separations and minerals processing. Techniques of interest to our members include, for example, membranes, chromatography, solvent extraction, ion exchange, adsorption, filtration, electrophoresis, distillation, and precipitation. Thus, the Subdivision's symposia and papers have practical application to your specific scientific concerns.
