Surprising Science! ~ Carbon Dioxide - Harmful or Useful ?
by Professor Jason Yeo, Department of Chemistry, NUS

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a greenhouse gas. High concentrations of it will lead to harmful climate changes. Prof Yeo shows how to convert CO2 to high value molecules, such as ethylene and ethanol. This transformation is achieved by using cheap copper catalysts, water and electricity, which can be generated renewably using solar panels.



Surprising Science! ~ One Degree, Many Opportunities!
A menagerie of career opportunities for the NUS Chemistry Major by Professor Ryan Bettens

What are my career options as a chemistry graduate? Just a scientist in a laboratory coat, testing reactions in fancy glass test tubes? The answer is NO!
Professor Bettens explains how studies in chemistry open the door to many career opportunities in diverse sectors.



Chemistry is Everywhere!

It's in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. In fact, the human body is one huge complex system of molecules interacting with one another. Learn here about the wonderful chemistry that is happening around us and how it shapes our daily lives! Watch the series of 1-min video below created by our chemistry undergraduate, Ms Shaphyna.
