About the RACI


Founded in 1917 and incorporated as an association in 2000, the RACI acts as the key body advocating the interests and activities of the chemical sciences with over 4000 members across Australia.

Representing and catering for the needs of all of our members is a priority, whether that's for a first-year graduate or a retiree who still has an active interest in chemistry. Our services and activities range from professional and career development across all chemical sciences sectors, through to regular and engaging networking opportunities.

We also exist to further chemical science knowledge in Australia. This is far-reaching, from creating educational initiatives in secondary and tertiary schools through to communicating the importance of chemistry to the public and government.
