Welcome to ChemSoc!

We are a Cambridge-based society hosting chemistry talks, usually on Friday nights in term time. Our events are always free to attend, and usually feature wine and refreshments.

Our talks are usually held in the Pfizer Lecture Theatre, in the Department of Chemistry. To find this, enter the Department in accordance with the red arrows on this map.

This Term's Events

Unfortunately, we have to rearrange the talk originally planned for Monday, the 5th of November, as our speaker is unwell; we will let you know when we have a new date in place.
