Discover our exhibit Molecular Music: The Sound of Chemistry during the Summer Science Exhibition at the Royal Society. A collaboration between Ilkley Grammar School (Dr Neil Garrido) and the University of Bradford (Drs William Martin and Nicolas Barry), funded by a Royal Society Partnership Grant.


From the synthesis of electron-deficient metal complexes and their formulation in polymer particles for chemical and biological applications, to the synthesis of hungry nanoscopic giants made of precious metal nanocrystals, our interests in science are broad. Happy browsing!
