Citation: Cheng, H. N., Rimando, A.M.; Miller, B.D.; Schmidt, D.G. (Eds). Chemistry Without Borders: Careers, Research, and Entrepreneurship. ACS Symposium Series 1219, American Chemical Society, Washington, DC. 177 pp. 2016.

Interpretive Summary: This book is based on two symposia of the American Chemical Society (ACS): 1) “The Transnational Practice of Chemistry and Allied Sciences and Engineering: Study, Research and Careers without Borders” held at the Spring National Meeting in Denver in March 2015, and 2) “International Entrepreneurship: How to Start a Business and Thrive in the Global Marketplace” held at the ACS Fall National Meeting in Boston in August 2015. These symposia are part of the Presidential-sponsored or recommended symposia series related to ACS International Activities. Both symposia share a common theme - “Chemistry without Borders.” The book is divided into two sections: 1) Transnational Study, Research and Careers, and 2) International Entrepreneurship. This book includes 19 chapters which are contributions from most of the speakers from the two symposia. Some topics included in the chapters are: future chemistry curriculum, global preparedness of students, international education exchange and research opportunities, study-abroad programs, and international research collaborations. This book is targeted for all scientists and engineers, particularly chemists, biochemists, chemical engineers, and others in chemistry-related professionals and students.
