2017 FALL ACS NATIONAL MEETING ABSTRACT DEADLINE
March 27, 2017
AGFD Program at the Spring National Meeting in San Francisco will be held in the Hilton Union Square
FLAVOR CHEMISTRY WORKSHOP
The First International Flavor and Fragrance Conference
May 8-9, 2017, Hotel Las Américas, Cartagena Colombia
This workshop will cover the main chemical and biogenetical aspects of odor-volatile compounds related to the food flavors, and the instrumental methodologies for their analyses. Additionally, the issues related to processed flavors and industrial scale-up will be also covered. Attendants will get the opportunity to perform a short descriptive olfactory training.
AGFD member Fred Jaeger, a scientist at Bayer CropScience is featured in a ACS short video that is part of the series called What Chemists Do.
The Division of AGFD offers many opportunities for awards and recognition. See the Awards page for more details and information
Congratulations to AGFD Members Lauren Jackson and Kim Morehouse on being named to the 2016 class of ACS Fellows!

AGFD brings together persons particularly interested in the chemistry of agricultural and food products, both raw and finished; to foster programs of general papers and symposia on special topics dealing with this field of chemistry; to promote such other activities as will stimulate activity in and emphasize the importance of research in agricultural and food chemistry. AGFD provides quality, timely Symposium at ACS National Meetings. Programs are of interest not only to chemists, but to biochemists, biologists, agronomists, plant physiologists, molecular biologists, agricultural engineers, chemical engineers, material scientists and food scientists.
Technical focus is on agriculture, renewable resources, food composition, food quality, food processing, nutrition, biochemistry, food safety, food flavor, biotechnology, natural products, pharmaceuticals, green products, chemical raw materials and feedstocks, bioenergy, and sustainability.
Objectives of the division are to encourage the advancement and understanding of agricultural and food chemistry; and to promote scientific interest and inquiry in agricultural and food chemistry by divisional meetings, professional contacts, reports, papers, discussions and publications.
