Chemist, Dr Andrea Sella, talks about how different aspects of chemistry will change the way we live on everything from nanotechnology to sustainable fuels.

At the NSQI Centre, Bristol, a vibration-free building has been constructed, meaning that scientists can study molecular level.

In Exeter, a material called "graphene" looks set to change the world of electronics, enabling flexible electronics and quantum computers.
