About the Author:

Michael Clugston was born in Lurgan, Northern Ireland, in 1950 and educated at Epsom College and Wadham College, Oxford, where he was the Major Scholar in Chemistry in 1969. He continued his studies and research at both Harvard and Cambridge, before going into full-time school mastering at Tonbridge School in 1978, where he has been ever since. He has written extensively on Chemistry and Science more generally, and was shortlisted for the Salters Prize for Chemistry teachers in 2000.
