A light upon the horizon: Young analytical chemists forging new scientific pathways during an economic downturn

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Analytical chemists are working towards characterization and optimization of advanced and efficient energy sources using detection and quantitation methods. The US, Europe, Japan, and other countries are increasing scientific funding to support research and to attract young generation to science studies. The US Congress plans to pass a stimulus package of $787 billion to promote infrastructure development, employment incentive plans, and strategic tax cuts to improve economic development. The bill is expected to provide $16.5 billion for scientific research, with $3 billion for the NSF and $8.5 for the NIH. The stimulus funds is aimed to provide funds for energy research through agencies like the Department of Energy. Researchers need to develop new environmentally friendly methods to monitor the deterioration of ecosystems.
