Turning wine into gold at the British Science Festival

Dr Peter Cragg

This week University of Brighton is co-hosting the British Science Festival 2017. Last night if you headed to the East Street Tap pub in Brighton you will have happened across some crazy chemistry turning wine into gold! Dr Peter Cragg  astounded the patrons of the pub by taking an ordinary glass of wine and extracting gold nanoparticles from the acids you find within it.

There is still more fun to be had at the British Science Festival check out their website for details.
