In Jan. 1972 the Chemical Society incorporated for a trial period of three years the Faraday Society, Royal Institute of Chemistry and Society for Analytical Chemistry. The Royal Institute of Chemistry continues to exist under its original charter in executing functions concerning the individual in a professional role. Its other functions have been transferred to the Chemical Society. The Faraday Society and the Society for Analytical Chemistry have now become divisions of the Chemical Society. On June 1, 1980 the Royal Society of Chemistry was formed by the merger of the Chemical Society and the Royal Institute of Chemistry. Works by these bodies are found under the name used at the time of publication.
