Launch of AWE-UCL Centre for Computational Materials Science
Publication date: 6 March 2015
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: 5 March 2015
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.

World REF Article
Publication date: 5 January 2015
Start: Dec 22, 2014 12:00:00 AM
After a formidable amount of work, the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) exercise is complete and published. The results, which capture the UK chemistry research environment, and the quality and impact of that research, will no doubt prompt much discussion, analyses and comparison around the world. But what do the results mean for UK chemistry today and for the future of chemistry in general? Find out more here.

3D model shows survival strategies of bacteria
Publication date: 15 September 2014
Bacteria are particularly ingenious when it comes to
survival strategies. They often create a biofilm to protect themselves
hostile environment, for example during treatment with antibiotics, and
scientists have unravelled the secrets of how they do this with a new 3D
Award For Chemistry in Green Impact Award
Publication date: 16 June 2014
The Chemistry department's Green Impact team "All the good names Argon" has won the Platinum award at this year's Green Impact Awards on Tuesday (10th
June 2014). This is thanks to the hard work of the all members
of the Green Impact Team! We want to encourage more people in the
department to become more sustainable, especially starting this
