Event details

The combination of organic synthesis and structural science via X-ray crystallography provides an important approach for investigating a variety of scientific topics. This has been stimulated in part by the greater ease in obtaining X-ray diffraction data from small crystals.

The lecture will show how using these techniques together has been applied by Professor Wallis’s research group in the areas of chemical bond formation, organic conducting materials and research into potential anti-cancer agents. It will also illustrate how important collaboration is in modern-day science.

The role of interactions between molecules, how one chemical group can affect another group, and surprises from organic synthesis, will be highlighted.
