The Estonian Chemical Society (ECS) was founded in 1919 soon after Estonia gained its independence as an Estonian Chemists’ Society. It was the first scientific society formed in Estonian Republic.

All these years the Society has played an active role in organizing and promoting the interests of Estonian chemists and chemical engineers.

The Society has formed specialized committees advancing:

  • chemical terminology in modern Estonian
  • environmentally sustainable chemical technology
  • chemical science and innovation
  • chemical education

ECS is a member of the Federation of European Chemical Societies and European Federation of Chemical Engineering. The Society keeps relations with other Societies. Especially close co-operation has been with the Finnish Chemical Society and the American Chemical Society.

ECS is associated with the Estonian Academy of Sciences.
