Since its Inaugural Conference in Dar es Salaam in 1999, the Tanzania Chemical Society (TCS) held two other conferences, the second in 2011 in Dar es Salaam during the International Year of Chemistry and the third in Arusha in 2017 together with the 6th Federation of African Associations of Chemistry Congress. In 2019 TCS was honoured to organize and host the IUPAC Summer School on Green Chemistry which was the first to be held in Africa. This was part of the 100th Anniversary of IUPAC celebrations and the Internationl Year of the Periodic Table.
