Professor Ann Chippindale

Professor Ann Chippindale, Professor of Structural Chemistry and Department Director of Outreach
  • Professor of Structural Chemistry

  • Chemistry Examinations Officer.

Areas of interest

Professor Chippindale's research interests lie in solid-state inorganic chemistry, focusing 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 Light Source or the neutron source at ISIS, both of which are close to Reading.
