CBS Chemistry Visit

Dr. Fiona McArdle, a Senior lecturer Department of Life Sciences, Sligo, IT visited the school last week to carry out a workshop with Fifth and Sixth year chemistry students on Spectroscopy. The workshop, entitled Spectroscopy in a Suitcase, allowed students to use highly specialised analytical chemical equipment, including IR and UV spectrometry for measuring the concentration of organic compounds. The students tried it out on a number of materials including aspirin, ibuprofen and plastic.
