Chemistry at Oxford

On Wednesday 14th October, during Academic Priority Time, RDW took four 6.2 chemists, Henry Rees, James Mocatta, Harry Meek and Adam Hargreaves, to the Dyson Perrins Laboratory, at Oxford University, to analyse samples of limonene on a number of different instruments, including the gas chromatography mass spectrometer.  

This was the culmination of a project that has run during Academic Priority Time over a number of months, with boys investigating various aspects of the chemistry of limonene, the compound responsible for the distinctive aroma of citrus fruits.
