The Federation of African Societies of Chemistry (FASC) was established on 23 February 2006 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. FASC aims at promoting the advancement of chemical sciences and the practice of chemistry that could be instrumental to the fulfillment of the development aspiration and objective of the people in Africa

 

One of the major activities of FASC has been to organize scientific conferences as way of promoting interactions and networking as well as to provide for dissemination and sharing of research results among African chemists as well as with peers worldwide.
