At first glance, chemistry and music don’t have much in common. Dr Nicolas Barry and Dr William Martin from the University of Bradford will show you otherwise.

In their talk, as part of the launch evening of the Bradford Science Festival at the Museum of Science and Media, they played audiences the sounds of vibrating chemical bonds. Each molecule has its own unique set of musical notes which will only change in a chemical reaction. Dr Barry and Dr Martin shared more about their research and the sounds of their musical molecules.
