This branch of the Society of Chemical Industry was founded in 1884 as the Glasgow and Scotland Section, but was renamed following the establishment of a new branch in Edinburgh in 1915.
The society served as a forum for discussion on matters relating to the chemical industry, and held regular meetings in the Royal Technical College, Glasgow. Many members of staff of Anderson's College and the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College, later the Royal Technical College, were members of the Society. J.M. Leitch, senior lecturer in bakery technology and student advisor at the Royal Technical College, held the post of sectional secretary for a time.
The UK and international societies were still in existence in 2009, with the purpose of promoting the commercial application of science for the benefit of society.
