Published: 30 April 2012

A University of Southampton Masters of Chemistry student has won one of the prestigious Salters' prizes for 2012. Stephanie Newland impressed the judges with her knowledge of issues and challenges facing the chemical industry and was awarded £1,000.

"It was really good to be able to discuss these issues with leading figures in Chemistry and finding out more about how the subject can provide the answers to many of the world's most pressing problems such as population growth and the need to find new sources of energy," she says.

Last year, Southampton MChem student Emma Stuart also won a Salters' prize. She has now embarked on PhD study at Oxford.

The Salters' Institute of Industrial Chemistry was founded in 1918 to help young chemistry students returning from the First World War to complete their studies. It now supports chemistry teaching, encourages young people to pursue careers in the UK chemical industries and promotes chemical education.
