Chemistry

Did you forget that we are Chemistry teachers? What good is this unless there is some good Chemistry involved. This page will be updated over time to allow pupils (from our school or beyond) to get involved with some good Chemistry related practical work at school. It may also be of interest to anyone else who wants to see some of the Science involved.

We'll post some simple recipes here over time that pupils can have a go at making in school with their teacher's support. We've used these as part of our Drugs and Alcohol course.

We've also included a suitable method that we've developed to determine the alcohol content of beer using titrations and redox reactions. It includes several titration steps and a back titration, so it is suitable for an Advanced Higher project (or a Higher assignment for more adventurous types).
