Mr. David S. Edgeley (2011-2012)

David is exploring the different ways of describing ring puckering and conformation.  By using data in the CSD and avoiding the lab as much as possible, he hopes to create an amalgamated approach to defining ring puckering and conformation that could be implemented in refinement software. If he isn’t hiding in the CRL basement he’s … Read the rest
