Department of Chemistry

In the Spring 2018 issue of Chem@Cam Magazine, we experience 'the thrill of Chemistry', meet Alzheimer's Adversaries and hear from our alumni about their explosive experiments and memorable moments.

Highlights include:

Chemistry opens its doors: Visitors are thrilled by the bubbles and bangs at our annual Open Day.

Alzheimer's Adversary: Professor Sir Chris Dobson describes our work in combating a modern-day 'plague'.

Women in Chemistry: How stories from her childhood in China sparked Research Fellow Jenny Zhang's interest in science.

A fund of memories: Alumni on handling moon rock, meeting inspirational supervisors - and trying not to blow themselves up.
