ABSTRACT: Additive Manufacturing (AM) and 3D Printing have been in the news more and more over the past few years. It is often referred to by everyone from design engineers and medical professionals right down to elementary school students. Even with all the talk, there is still a line between hobbyist using the lower cost 3D printing technologies and true additive platforms in real manufacturing applications. In this presentation, DSM will demonstrate many of the applications where true additive manufacturing makes a significant impact in industries like aerospace, automotive and medical.

Happy New Year!
I wish you all a happy and prosperous 2018.
2017 saw a revolutionary way of bringing meetings to our members. By streaming to several locations around the Chicago area our meetings were made more accessible. We started off with two locations and will have four for our January meeting. My thanks go out to Fran Kravitz for her vision and leadership in 2017. Fran has also served as a great mentor and coach for me as I prepare to Chair the section.
I am very big fan of vision and mission and believe that successful organizations have alignment with the vision and mission of the organization. In 2017 we worked on aligning the vision and mission of our local section with that of our national organization:
VISION: Improving people’s lives through the transforming power of chemistry
MISSION: Advancing the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people
To which end we adopted the following:
VISION: The vision of the Chicago Section of the American Chemical Society is to improve people’s lives through chemistry and its applications.
MISSION: The mission of the Chicago Section of the American Chemical Society is to advance the chemical sciences and their practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people.
We will continue developing our 5 year plan in 2018. Everything we do in our section should be aligned with the vision and mission of the ACS. As we look at the core values of the ACS, I’ve been reflecting on how we are adopting them:
Passion for Chemistry and the Global Chemistry Enterprise: At our monthly meetings, by bringing in dynamic speakers we create an environment for chemists to socialize and network. Through our Primary School Education, High School Education, and College Education and Project SEED Committees we share our passion for students of all ages. Through our Community Activities, and State Fair committees we share our passion with the general public. To which end we will be looking to do a great deal more activities including hosting Science Café events.
Focus on Members: We aim to create opportunities for personal development by creating an atmosphere at our monthly meetings to network with other scientists but also through our Employment and Professional Relations committee where we are now focused on career development. Our Senior Chemists Committee and Young Chemists Committee create opportunities not only to socialize, but to gain a greater appreciation of companies in our area through visits and tours. And of course it’s important to recognize our members through our awards.
Professionalism, Safety, and Ethics: The Environmental and Lab Safety and the Public Affairs committees provide us with knowledge, where we are very involved in the national ACS.
Diversity and Inclusion: We promote diversity not only through the activities of our Minority Affairs and Women Chemists Committees but also but also by bringing in speakers with diverse disciplines, backgrounds and point of views.
The Chicago Section is a very active section with a rich tradition. There are a vast number of opportunities for members to get involved. At each meeting in 2018, we will be highlighting our committees; I encourage you to learn more about them and get involved with the ones that align with your passion.
The Communications/Technology Committee has done a tremendous job streaming our meetings and promoting our activities in 2017 and will continue to do so in 2018. So look and be aware, there’s an ACS meeting at a location near you.
Finally I’d like to thank our committee and board members for their diligent work and whose support I know I can count on in 2018.
So enjoy the celebrations as we bring in the New Year, we have a lot of work to do at “Improving people’s lives through the transforming power of chemistry”.

That’s Some Spicy Water!
Glass, Water, Pepper, Dish Soap
In a glass of water, lightly sprinkle a little pepper onto it. What do you see happen? Maybe some of the flakes sank and some of them floated? Now, touch your fingertip to the dishwashing soap and then using that finger, touch it to the surface of the water. What do you see happening now?
In the November issue we talked about how polar water was and what effect soap has on water. This is another application of the same principle. First of all, most likely some of the pepper sank when you sprinkled it on the water. If something sinks in water we say it is more dense than water. It turns out that the density of pepper is about 1.5 g/cm3 while that of water is 1.0 g/cm3 (or g/mL). So if pepper is more dense than water why doesn’t it all sink? This is where surface tension comes into play. In the past year we’ve talked a lot about surface tension and that with water being as polar as it is, those water molecules like to hold onto each other and not let things go through them easily (that’s why water bugs are able to walk on water). I like to think of water as a mini magnet and those magnets hold onto each other. Because the water holds so tightly to itself, most of the pepper is able to float on water. Probably the first thing that you noticed though was that the pepper went scurrying to the edge of the glass when you touched the soap to the water. The soap is breaking the surface tension and so the pepper stays with the water that still has surface tension. When I say it lost its surface tension, what does that really mean? Again, the surface tension is caused by water molecules holding very strongly to each other and so the soap is disrupting those interactions by creating new interactions of the water with the soap which are not nearly as strong as the water-water interactions. We saw this in last month’s ChemShorts when we touched a toothpick with soap on it to a water droplet and the droplet lost its sphere-like shape. It’s possible that some of the pepper ended up sinking as the soap formed micelles around the pepper – although those pepper particles are really, really, really BIG! These micelles would allow the pepper to sink but most likely the water simply lost its surface tension allowing the more dense pepper to sink.
One last note, did you happen to notice how fast that pepper moved? I am amazed at how fast molecules in water move. It turns out that they move at approximately 1300 miles per hour or 590 meters per second! That’s fast.
