It publishes journals, books and databases, as well as hosting conferences, seminars and workshops.
The society was founded on 15 April 1903 as the "Algemene Nederlandsche Chemische Vereeniging" (English: General Netherlands Chemical Society), and renamed on 4 July of the same year as "Nederlandsche Chemische Vereeniging" (English: Netherlands Chemical Society). At the jubilee of 1953 Queen Juliana conferred on the organisation the designation "Koninklijke" (English: Royal).
