Dear YourFormula fans,

From all the celebrations on the  International Year of Soils and Light-based Technologies to the Nobel Prize on mechanistic studies of DNA repair, 2015 was without doubt a year of amazing scientific discoveries with a significant number of scientific events taking place.

2015 was also important for YourFormula. we have seen our “family” grow and we now count with 18 bloggers, we were the official partners of the International Symposium on Green Chemistry 2015 and Science & You and we witnessed the growth of our online community with the multiple campaigns we have developed on Twitter and Facebook.

Thanks to you YourFormula continues to be the place where major discussions about chemistry, sustainability and innovation are take place!

To celebrate this I´ve selected the TOP 5 blog posts of 2015
