About:

The need to analyse a compound is a fundamental requirement of most areas of science, particularly those involving food and the environment. Chemistry plays a key role in many areas of Fera's work. The techniques we use include: analytical chemistry; natural product chemistry; biological chemistry; computational chemistry; and formulation chemistry.

As part of IYC 2011 we woudl liek to set up a web page describing how we use chemistry in our work.
