Summary on Grant Application Form
A state of the art CCd detector and associated hardware and software will provide a highly-sensitive area detector instrument with which to pursue highly demanding structural and change density studies of a wide range of important materials. The enhanced power of this detector, which is 3-4 times more sensitive than our present system, will enable us to study samples which are simply not viable with our existing instrumentation, as well as giving us the capacity to undertake new charge density work. The instrument will provide structural data to support synthetic chemistry and molecular sciences covering diverse areas such as co-ordination and organometallic complexes, supramolecular chemistry, liquid crystals, crystal engineering, complex natural products marine metabolites, catalysis, medicinal chemistry, chiral synthesis, biomimetric chemistry, supercritical fluids, solid state and materials chemistry. Nottingham has made a very large number of new appointments in the past 18 months including Arnold Anderson, Champness, Clarke, Garner, George, Howdle, Lygo, McMaster and Woodward whose researches will be underpinned by the current proposal. Nottingham's research profile is extremely strong therefore highly reliant upon crystallography. It is therefore vital that these new and existing projects are not constrained by a lack of data collection facilities and capability.
