When medieval alchemists staged spectacular stunts in front of royalty they never revealed the secrets of their mystical potions and fire-breathing creations.

Today's chemists can perform equally impressive feats, but they do so to explain and explore the extreme frontiers of our material world. Following the success of the 2012 Christmas Lectures, the Royal Society of Chemistry is working with the Royal Institution and presenter Dr Peter Wothers, from the University of Cambridge, to deliver "The Modern Alchemist" touring lecture show.

This is a Royal Institution lecture sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry and hosted by the University of Leicester.
