The winners of the 2012 Images of Chemistry prizes are below. Thanks to everyone who entered and provided a fascinating and varied look into the workings of the School.
Jennifer Turkington, Georg Silber and Matthew Wilson: Acid/Base Wash. This image depicts splash art that is possible to achieve by dropping universal indicator into sinks of varying pH's.
Charlotte Brady: Europe Under a Microscope I use microelectrodes produced on silicon wafers with microlithography in my work, sometimes at under very harsh conditions. On checking this one under the microscope after use I thought it resembled a map of Europe, with some interesting colouring.
Kirsten Strain: Choppy Surface This is a screenshot of the readings from an atomic force microscope program, before the measurement parameters were optimised. It doesn't mean anything except that the settings are wrong, but it looks fun.
