General Overview

I officially "retired" in September 2001 but am still "research-active" as a University Emeritus Professor. I am also an Honorary Professor in the School of Chemistry at the University of St.Andrews, Scotland.

Research efforts are devoted to the determination of the crystal and molecular structures of inorganic, organic and organometallic compounds. Recent emphasis has been on supramolecular chemistry, conformation and hydrogen-bonding in the solid state, and inorganic stereochemistry.
