Right quote

I'm glad I chose to study chemistry because every day I learn something new that blows my mind. The structure of the course at Cardiff has allowed me to balance studies with extracurricular activities such as sports and societies which I believe is integral to everyone's university experience. I believe that this course will open many doors for my future and I am going to look into doing a PhD once I graduate.

Unrealistic journal requirement for chemical purity of samples

7 July 2022

Researchers at the Cardiff Catalysis Institute collaborated with three international research groups on a study that showed an unrealistic journal requirement for chemical purity of samples.

REF assesses the quality of research in UK higher education institutions. The impact of our research and environment in which we work at Cardiff University were integral to our REF 2021 submission.
