Department of Chemistry University of Oxford
Welcome to the Chemistry Department's Alumni Website.

The Department of Chemistry set up an Alumni network for all former undergraduates and postgraduates in 2012.

With a wide range of events and communications throughout the year, we hope that this network will help our alumni maintain and strengthen their relationships with the Department and with each other.

The Oxford Alumni Weekend

Please join us at the Oxford Alumni Weekend, Saturday September 16th, 4-5pm at the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory Lecture Theatre, South Parks Road, OX1 3QR

Chemistry plays an essential part in the search for clean and plentiful energy, and pioneering research at Oxford led to the first Li-ion batteries. Hear how Oxford chemists are contributing to a secure and sustainable energy future.
This event will be followed by a drinks reception for Chemistry alumni in the beautiful and historic Abbot’s Kitchen.

Please contact Susan Davis to register.  We look forward to seeing you!
