ChemCats is a branch of a national organization for any students of any major interested in chemistry. By joining ChemCats, you are associating yourself with the American Chemical Society (ACS), the largest scientific society in the world and one of the oldest professional societies in the United States.

ChemCats can provide you with many opportunities to serve your community, to engage socially with other people interested in chemistry and to learn about the amazing research projects professors are working on right here at UK. We encourage all students to join ChemCats, which involves only a small fee of $24. All majors are welcome, not just chemistry!

If you are interested in joining the UK chapter of ChemCats, simply come by our next meeting (normally the first Wednesday of the month, but subject to change) or contact one of our Membership officers:
