Chemistry pupils attend University Masterclass

S5 pupils Samaya, Ria and Harini attended a Chemistry Masterclass at Heriot-Watt University on Thursday the 12th March, accompanied by Chemistry teacher, Dr Paul McGrath.

The one-day event was held for 5th year pupils and their teachers to enthuse them about Chemistry by performing practical activities in the Heriot Watt teaching laboratory.

The pupils carried out some organic synthesis, either of drug molecules or molecules with biologically significant structures.

They then looked at analytical techniques like IR and NMR spectroscopy to identify them.
