Restek is proud to be a sponsor of the 2013 International Symposium on Polycyclic Aromatic Compounds (ISPAC) being held from September 8–12 on the campus of Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon. According to ISPAC, this year’s event “will focus on the research of Polycyclic Aromatic Compounds (PACs) on multiple fronts of analytical measurements, toxicology, organic synthesis, human exposure and health effects, and environmental presences, sources, fate, and transport. It is a forum that brings together researchers worldwide to communicate, learn, and advance the field of PAC.”
