A bit of history

flagsThe French American Chemical Society (FACS) is a completely volunteer, non-profit organization that was informally established in 1986 by Pr. E. J. Corey (Harvard University Professor and Nobel Prize recipient) and the late Dr. Pierre Potier (Director of the Institute of Natural Products Chemistry in Gif-sur-Yvette, France) to promote organic chemistry in its broadest sense and also the scientific interactions between France, United States and Canada. Both the academic and the industrial communities from France and the USA are concerned by the main event of the FACS: the FACS Symposium, held every two years alternately in the two countries.
