A Conversation with Greta Heydenrych, IUPAC's new executive director

For most chemists, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), is the organization that gives elements their names and decides what terminology researchers should use in scientific papers. I spoke to Greta Heydenrych, IUPAC's new executive director, about why chemists should embrace standardization, the direction in which she hopes to lead IUPAC, and the challenges the organization faces. The whole article was published by ACS Central Science and C&EN Magazine.
