The School of Sciences of the University of Navarra and the Caja Navarra Foundation have organized a series of talks in the Civican auditorium with the goal to bring various aspects of Science to the general public, under the degree scroll "Without science there is no culture".

The conferences, which will take place on Fridays January 13, 20 and 27 and on Friday February 3 at 19 30 h., will begin tomorrow with the discussion paper 'The Chemistry, a natural science', to position of the doctor in Chemical Sciences José Ramón Isasi, director of the department of Chemistry Organic and Soil Science.

The expert will discuss how and why public opinion associates Chemistry with the artificial and toxic. "At the same time, questions will be raised such as: where did each and every raw material come from, is there any substance that is not Chemistry? In addition to showing the Chemistry that surrounds us in the natural world, the possibility of a world without Chemistry and how scientists of the 21st century must achieve a sustainable Chemistry if they want to maintain current conveniences", explains Dr. Isasi.
