    Founded in 1919 by industrial and academic chemists to achieve international standardization in chemistry, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) aims to strengthen international chemistry, inspire high standards of excellence and relevance in academic and industrial research, and promote chemistry in the service of society and global issues.
    IUPAC members form a global network. Associates and affiliates - chemical companies, national academies of science, industrial companies, research and development institutes, universities, laboratories and individuals from all over the world - they represent the world's research and chemical industry. IUPAC also has formal and informal links with international organizations that touch on all aspects of society. This network of members currently includes:
    • more than 55 countries actively engaged in the governance of the Union
    • 31 associated organizations that share common objectives and interests
    • about 58 associated companies that support or participate in IUPAC activities through the Committee on Chemistry and Industry
    • nearly 2,100 individual volunteers involved in committees and projects
    • almost 2,000 individual affiliated members
    • about 2,160 fellows.
