From Flowers To Flasks: Connecting plants to organic chemistry (Thursday 27th June 2013)

Thu, 27/06/2013 - 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Botanic Garden

 

This walk will reveal the fascination of plants to organic chemists – how the molecules produced by plants growing in the Botanic Garden have brought so much inspiration to chemistry. We will look at how the isolation and identification of molecules from plants has driven organic chemistry from infancy to a blossoming science over the last 100 years. We will also look at some plants in the Garden that have yielded molecules that are actively being worked on in the University Chemistry Department. Led by Ed Anderson.

Thursday 27th June 2013.

This guided walk will take place at 6.30pm at the Botanic Garden and will last approximately an hour followed by a glass of wine or soft drink. Tickets cost £10 and can be booked online.
