Initially, the Challenges for the Chemical Sciences in the 21st Century project was designed to be a series of five workshops encompassing the main technological areas to which the chemical sciences contribute. After the events of September 11, 2001, it was recognized that chemists and chemical engineers have always contributed significantly to our nation's defense capabilities and that now they will play an increasingly important part in homeland security. Thus, the National Security and Homeland Defense Workshop was arranged on an emergency basis. It is hoped that the presentations and discussions at the workshop found in this report will help chemical scientists understand how their research can be applied to national security problems and will guide them in new directions to ultimately enhance the safety of U.S. civilians and military personnel.
