Associate Professor in Solid-State Chemistry
Dr Chippindale's research interests lie in solid-state inorganic chemistry, focussing on the synthesis and structural characterisation of materials with interesting chemical and physical properties. Current solids under investigation include transition-metal cyanides, some of which undergo fascinating structural transformations on heating. Single-crystal and powder diffraction techniques are used to determine the structures and phase changes of these materials either 'in house' or at National Facilities such as the X-ray synchrotron at Diamond or the neutron source at ISIS, both of which are close to Reading.
