Chemistry Students have Positive Reaction to University Taster Day

On Wednesday 27 June, a group of 26 A level Chemistry students visited the University of Leeds for a taster day in the undergraduate laboratories. They had to prepare a sample of paracetamol and then analyse its purity using thin layer chromatography, infra-red spectroscopy and by determination of melting point.

Mrs Rachel Hodgetts, Head of Chemistry, said: ‘The students had a brilliant day. They were so enthusiastic, professional and polite: a credit to Notre Dame!’
