Congratulations to five chemistry graduands who have received a commendation for this year’s Dean’s List. 

• Joe Barnett, BSc Chemistry

Urban Alchemy

Publication date:

Urban Alchemy

Urban Alchemy explores the material stories and processes of urban change through imaginative salvage and chemical print experiments. Roofing zinc becomes etching plate from which portraits of those removing this zinc from the rooftops of London's ever changing skyline emerge. Slate and bricks become ink and plywood hoardings are transformed through woodcut.  

Launch of AWE-UCL Centre for Computational Materials Science

Publication date:

AWE has launched the Centre for Computational Materials Science (CCMS) at University College London (UCL) to support AWE’s technical programme, and help nurture and potentially recruit the next generation of computational chemists at AWE. The CCMS is a collaborative enterprise between AWE and UCL, specifically centred on the area of modelling and materials science, and is funded through AWE’s technical outreach programme. 

New paint makes tough self-cleaning surfaces

Publication date:

self clean image

A new paint that makes robust self-cleaning surfaces has been developed by a team led by UCL researchers. The coating can be applied to clothes, paper, glass and steel and when combined with adhesives, maintains its self-cleaning properties after being wiped, scratched with a knife and scuffed with sandpaper.
