Who is OU Alchemy for?

Our soci­ety is for any­one who has an interest in chem­istry, is study­ing chem­istry, is con­sid­er­ing study­ing it, has ever stud­ied it or who teaches it. Yes, it’s also for those people who’re obliged to study it but aren’t too fond of it – we’re here to help (and we hope we might con­vert you!)

Stu­dents came along to make sher­bet, sug­gest names for the Alchemy bear and attempt to identify our knit­ted molecule, as well as glan­cing through the news­let­ters and tak­ing advant­age of the RSC free­bies on offer.
