Membership to OUAlchemy is free for the first 6 months while we launch. We sincerely hope you decide to join us and maybe even choose to contribute to our success. For more information, please visit the membership page.
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!)
Anyone coming up to the end of their degree and considering teaching?
You may be interested in the Teach First Insight programme, which gives a taster of what to expect. Here’s the link: http://graduates.teachfirst.org.uk/recruitment/undergraduate-opportunities/insight.html
But move fast! Applications have to be in by 26th January
OK, xenon won’t be reacting with the ice in your freezer. But apparently, if you ramp up the temperature and pressure enough, then it reacts to form a crystalline compound with unit cell containing Xe4O12H12. Suitable conditions for this occur inside planets like Uranus and Neptune.
OU Alchemy is organising a visit to the Open University HQ in Milton Keynes on Saturday, 25th January 2014. We are planning to meet at 11.00am, have a tour of the campus and a visit to the Chemistry Department, where we are going to meet some members of staff. We intend to go into town for some food/coffee/drinks afterwards. If you would like to spend more time with us, we’re planning an overnight stay in a hotel close to the city centre. For Sunday, we’re looking at visiting Bletchley Park, the home of the WW2 codebreakers.
If you are interested, you can let us know here:
