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.

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.

World REF Article

Publication date:

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.

REF Publication: Key results for Department

Publication date:

REF2014  Chemistry

The REF exercise is a six yearly assessment that assess the outputs, research environment and impact of the research from departments in every university in the UK. On the basis of the assessment HEFCE determine the amount of funding each university will receive.
