The Modern Alchemist - RI Touring Lecture Show
8th July 2014

When medieval alchemists staged spectacular stunts in front of royalty they never revealed the secrets of their mystical potions and fire-breathing creations. Today's chemists can perform equally impressive feats, but they do so to explain and explore the extreme frontiers of our material world. Following the success of the 2012 Christmas Lectures, the Royal Society of Chemistry is working with the Royal Institution and presenter Dr Peter Wothers from the University of Cambridge, to deliver ‘The Modern Alchemist’ touring lecture show. Expect plenty of explosions and loud noises!
