A Level Chemistry

Representatives from the Royal Society of Chemistry at Warwick University visited the A-Level Chemists with their ‘Spectroscopy in a Suitcase’. The year 12s spent the morning using an Infrared Spectrometer from the RSC to analyse and identify mystery samples of unknown compounds. The students have spent their last few week synthesising, purifying and analysing Aspirin. They were then able to use the Infrared spectrometer to clarify that their synthesis had been successful and confirm the correct structure of aspirin in their sample.

Well done Chemists!
