Whether the notion was first articulated by a famous physicist, beloved baseball player or simply someone else, there is no doubt that predictions can be difficult, especially about the future. Nevertheless, another famous quote (of slightly more certain origin) suggests that perhaps the best way to predict the future is to actually invent it yourself. We are confident, therefore, that the collective vision presented below in this article — from researchers who are actively pushing forward the frontiers of chemistry and helping invent its future — offers a credible blueprint for the challenges our subject will face, and how it will evolve in the coming years.
