Il Consiglio Centrale della Società Chimica Italiana, riunitosi in data 11 giugno, ha approvato all'unanimità la seguente dichiarazione:
A Statement from Società Chimica Italiana regarding Tomas Hudlicky essay in Angewandte Chemie International Edition
The Società Chimica Italiana expresses its disapproval to some unsubstantiated and inconceivable thoughts by Tomas Hudlicky in his opinion essay entitled “Organic synthesis-Where now?” is thirty years old. A reflection on the current state of affairs posted and then retracted by Angewandte Chemie International Edition. His views on diversity and inclusion appear very slanderer and damaging to some components of the international community of chemists, that, thanks to their solid passionate commitment, give a substantial contribution to the advancement of science and, in particular, of chemistry.
