This book was developed from the American Chemical Society (ACS) Presidential Symposium on "Vision 2025: How to Succeed in the Global Chemistry Enterprise," held at the 245th National Meeting of the ACS in New Orleans in April 2013. The symposium speakers (and authors of the book chapters) were top leaders of the chemistry enterprise, including Presidents of international chemical societies, corporate executives, academic thought leaders, federal science agency directors, and successful entrepreneurs. The purpose was to provide their collective perspectives on the global chemistry enterprise and share their experiences and ideas in order to benefit chemistry professionals and students in the future. Some of the topics covered included current activities of international chemical societies, successful global collaborative efforts, ideas on further cooperative and educational opportunities, and examples of recent successful research or entrepreneurial efforts. A total of 22 chapters are included in this book with contributions from almost all symposium speakers. For convenience, they are divided into three sections: 1) Perspectives from U.S. leaders, 2) Perspectives from international leaders, and 3) Successful global start-ups, collaborations, and overseas assignments.
