Many people are not afraid of driving but are afraid of chemicals. There is a simple reason for this: They learned the movements that are necessary to drive a car in driving school and usually have a long experience with them. You understand the connections and have them under control. Not so with chemistry. Relationships in chemistry are often unknown. And the unknown is scary.
Explaining relationships in chemistry to a broad audience in an easily understandable form is one of the main goals of the Senior Expert Chemists. The working group public relations group has taken on this task. For example, senior experts have compiled topics from chemistry that are suitable for newspaper columns in newspapers.
Under the leadership of Dr. Ursula Kraska, these contributions are processed and offered to individual daily newspapers for publication. Under the motto: "From chemistry: what you know, what you should know" the contributions are available in a uniform form, of course machine-readable, and therefore editable by the editors. If you are interested, Dr. Kraska (telephone 06150-3353).
Texts for newspaper columns can currently be offered on the following topics:
So far, the Cellesche Zeitung and the Mittelbayerische Zeitung have published the newspaper columns of the Senior Expert Chemists in an abridged version. These newspaper columns texts are also prepared for the GDCh platform for the public "Fascination Chemistry" in the category " Chemistry everywhere ".
