Celebrating twenty years
High pressures, cold temperatures and inaccessible samples all make analytical work challenging. Katie Gibb explores the techniques used by chemists working in hostile conditions
Leanne Hart's passion for encouraging people into the chemical industry prompted her to apply to become its young ambassador. She tells Katie Gibb about her year
Chemicals are responsible for the flavour and bouquet of wine. Could understanding the chemistry help you pick the ideal tipple for your Christmas dinner? Katie Gibb investigates
