As part this year's Chemistry Week the RSC Liverpool Local Section held an evening event for its members aligned with the week's theme of 'Global Science'. Murray Brown, of the local section committee, reports.
The evening, held on 22 November, comprised an informal talk given by Professor Roy Alexander from the University of Chester on Ashton-Hayes, Cheshire's carbon neutral village project, followed by a hot buffet and an entertaining pub-style quiz.
The quiz had five round of questions, loosely based on the Royal Society of Chemistry’s global science themes: environment, energy, food, health and water. There was also a ‘Pointless’ chemistry round.
