Let’s Celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Québec Chapter

Chemistry a long history!

The history of science, and especially that of chemistry, is full of more important discoveries for our daily lives. But do you know that these are sometimes the source of errors of scientists?

In this lecture I propose to take you on a historical journey retracing some great discoveries and the most formidable errors of scientific thought which make science today what it is.
