Research Articles Webpage: An Outreach Project

A set of chemistry comprehension articles for post 16 students, which are edited by Tim Harrison and Dudley Shallcross

The Project uses academics, postdoctoral research assistants and postgraduate students from the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol to produce a set of chemistry comprehension exercises based on current chemistry research and targeted at Post 16 chemists. Click here.

Argon: the particle sandbox app

This is free particle simulation software. Argon is a molecular dynamics simulator, a technique used in chemistry to model the behaviours of atoms and molecules, and even large biological structures. Using Argon, you can watch crystals form at low temperatures, or see particles bounding around at high temperatures. Change the way the particles react to each other, and see the dynamics change in real time. You can even add areas of attraction or repulsion and control them by making noise. This is a University of Bristol project that is on-going and so the app will evolve.
