Chemistry Pharmaceutical, July 201

Approximately 35,000 metric tonnes of Aspirin are produced and consumed annually, enough to make over 100 billion standard aspirin tablets every year. Nowadays aspirin is not only used as a pain killer but has also been proposed as effective in reducing the incidence of heart disease. This practical workshop will run on two days with the same programme each day and will include:

  • An introduction for Year 12 students to the synthesis of one of the oldest medicines, aspirin.
  • Analysis of the purity of aspirin using specialist techniques not used in school. This year's event includes a Spectroscopy session. Here students will be introduced to MS, IR and NMR spectroscopy, preparing them for the Organic A level module in Year 13.Spectroscopy in a Suitcase
