About SNIC

The Singapore National Institute of Chemistry (SNIC) was established in March 1970 as a national body for the chemical profession in Singapore.

The chemical Profession was in earlier years linked to the Royal Institute of Chemistry (RIC) in London through RIC Malaya Section and later RIC Singapore Section. With a growing number of graduates from the then University of Singapore and Nanyang University and with increasing industry activity requiring the services of qualified chemists, there was a real need for a local organisation to serve the interests of chemists and to maintain a high standard of professional competence and ethical practice. The Singapore National Institute of Chemistry was founded to meet this need.
