Chemistry at Birmingham

As an undergraduate chemistry student, I'm very used to people making the assumption that all I do for my degree is play around with Bunsen burners; however, this isn't quite the whole picture. Yes, in my first year at the University of Birmingham I spent countless hours in labs trying to synthesise a pure compound, or determine the density of a gaseous sample, but there's much more to the chemistry course.

What I got up to this summer

To me, I think the most noteworthy thing about my summer this year is how long it was! Having just finished my first year of University, I had never had anything like 4 months summer holiday, and after a stressful exam period, it seemed like exactly what I needed.
