Andrew and his research group are close associates of Chem. Cryst.. We share group meetings and, although they have some very strange ideas about what constitutes a single crystal, they collect data in the lab.
Keith Prout died quite suddenly in September 2007 after a short illness.
Although he had been officially retired for several years, he was continuing an active research program with Nick Rees combining X-ray and NMR studies. X-ray structure analysis gives information about disorder and thermal vibrations in crystals. When combined with solid state NMR … Read the rest
Violeta is an assistant professor in the Chemistry Department at the University of Novi Sad, Serbia. She obtained her Ph.D. in coordination chemistry studying the synthesis, structure and biological activity of transition metal compounds and visited for a few months to learn more about crystallography.… Read the rest
Terry was one of the pioneers of the use of neutron scattering in the United Kingdom and a founder member of the BCA. Although interested in many areas of crystallography, his particular specialities are neutron scattering studies of … Read the rest
Karim carried out a systematic study of ion binding in rotaxanes in collaboration with Paul Beer’s research group. He has since returned to Chem Cryst to undertake a DPhil. project under the supervision of Dr. Richard Cooper.… Read the rest
Emma’s research is focussed on developing a better understanding of the solid state. She is using a three pronged attack, studying the crystallisation of chalcones; examining the effect of temperature on a material that undergoes a phase transition, and investigating the World’s Favourite Space Group, P21/c. She is using a wide range of … Read the rest
Jeremy’s research revolves around using various techniques (NMR, crystallography and DFT calculations) to provide information about exactly where hydrogen atoms are located in crystal structures, and exploring the merits and shortcomings of the various techniques for this purpose. When he isn’t trying to persuade a supercomputer to calculate what he wants, he enjoys playing the … Read the rest
As part of Age Concern, an EPSRC-funded exploration into the world of modern crystallography, Dave is developing a fast, live, configurable chemical structure matching algorithm to identify discrepancies between an expected structure and a real crystallographic structure. Implemented in his software “matchbOx”, Dave is augmenting the software capabilities to automatically handle certain cases of crystal … Read the rest
