A day at Lancaster University gave Year 13 students the opportunity to tour the Chemistry department and then complete a lab-based activity with Alka Seltzers tablets. Students first isolated and then purified a product from the tablets. From here, students used the University’s state-of-the-art analytical instruments to perform various tests to identify their product and any impurities. These tests included the spectroscopic techniques of infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance and chromatography.
Students worked in teams and gained valuable practical chemistry skills whilst improving their analytical abilities by putting into practice what they had learnt at school. At the end of the day students gave presentations to explain what they had learnt during the day.
