A bright future for Chemical Science

Professor Andrew Cooper is the new editor-in-chief of our flagship journal Chemical Science. We caught up with him at the journal’s first ever symposium.

Proactively promoting science

Rebecca Ballantyne, who recently became a chartered chemist, speaks to us about how the process opened doors for her, challenging her in new ways and allowing her to use her chemistry background to give back to the community.

We caught up with Tonicha Roberts, former apprentice and now Forensic Reporting Scientist at Eurofins, who this year competed in the very first Laboratory Technician stream of the prestigious WorldSkills competition.

Dmitri Mendeleev is known as the father of the periodic table, but his interests were wide-ranging and sometimes eccentric. We take a look at his varied and often tumultuous life.

A video for every element

Sir Martyn Poliakoff is an iconic figure in the world of chemistry – perhaps most recognisable from his role in the YouTube phenomenon The Periodic Table of Videos. We caught up with him about the creation of the series, his early life, and the people who have inspired him.

Equality, support and community

We spoke to mature student, Lenka Cuprova, about how Royal Society of Chemistry membership has helped her to connect with her subject.
