YouTube brings to life some of the School of Chemistry's biggest scientific breakthroughs

From sniffing out Parkinsons to the manipulation of the building blocks for the world’s quickest computer, the School of Chemistry is demystifying some of its recent achievements by making them more accessible to audiences beyond academia and the University.

The CAMERA YouTube channel

The scientists have launched a project called CAMERA - Chemistry at Manchester Explains Research Advances - which is a series of films on YouTube.

The films tackle everything from the use of the breakthrough smart materials, such as Graphene, to tackling energy problems, like nuclear storage, and other firsts for nuclear science. Advanced Materials and Energy are Research Beacons at the University.

The University's research beacons are examples of pioneering discoveries, interdisciplinary collaboration and cross-sector partnerships that are tackling some of the biggest questions facing the planet.

The videos also look at nanotechnology, with the creation of the world’s smallest fuel powered motor to quantum chemistry and qubits which will revolutionise the way computers are built - when the technology catches up with the science.
