Chemistry: Analysing and modelling aspirin

Date: 17-Jul-2020

Time: 9.45am - 12.45pm

Target year group: Year 12

Information: This virtual taster session delivered by the University of Sheffield gives you an insight into studying chemistry at university. The session is for Y12 students studying A Level chemistry with an interest in studying chemistry at University.

In this interactive session, we will explore how chemists analyse their samples, using aspirin as an example. We will discuss infrared (IR) spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, and you'll learn how to use molecular modelling software to visualise aspirin in 3D as well!

After a quick break, there will be a chance for you to find out more about being a chemistry student at the University of Sheffield, as you take part in a Q&A. You will have the chance to talk to some of our current undergraduate students, a member of our admissions team, and a careers expert, who will all be on hand to answer any queries you might have about studying chemistry at university.
