Former student Katrina Williams celebrates successful MChem degree

Posted on

Congratulations to Katrina Williams, who took Chemistry, Biology and Art A levels at Long Road, on graduating with an MChem from Reading University.

During her final year of study, Katrina worked on a project entitled “Solvothermal and room temperature synthesis of metal cyanides.” Metal cyanides are interesting materials because they have many desirable properties: they can have brilliant colours, can conduct heat, and iron-based metal cyanides can be magnetic. These compounds have many applications within materials chemistry and beyond.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my four years at Reading – I also played the violin in the orchestra and took up archery from scratch with the Knights’ Archers (the campus is called White Knights). This led to an award as the Sports Committee Person of the Year! I’m currently investigating careers in industry, in particularly in research.”
