  1. 'After Eights are made using a catalyst,' said Dr Phil Davies, exhibitor for The gold rush at this year's Summer Science Exhibition. 'Purple gold is also a good catalyst.' Intrigued? Phil and Liam were ready to answer any questions about the exciting world of gold chemistry.
  2. Phil and Liam were certain about the potentials.
  3. And they were clear about the challenges.
  4. An interesting question from @nanostructuring about gold alloy as a catalyst.
  5. @SariRautiainen chipped in with another excellent contribution that was a catalyst for a fascinating discussion.
  6. This prompted young physicist @DanielGilks to get involved.
