Our Edinburgh Chemistry Trail

On Saturday 28th of September, as part of our Doors Open Day activities in the School of Chemistry we will be launching our brand new 'Chemistry Trail.' The free maps for the walking tour around Edinburgh will be available both in the School of Chemistry and at our 'Cradle of Chemistry' exhibition in the George Square Library.

Everyday processes and objects which we take for granted in the 21st century such as pain relief, artificial refrigeration, vitamin supplements and the existence and understanding of molecular structures were all discovered here in Edinburgh. We have selected a few chemistry highlights within Edinburgh's history and invite you to explore the city and find out more about the chemistry discoveries which took place here.

Pick up a map and enjoy discovering the chemistry sights in Edinburgh!
