Welcome to the Wann / Rankin Website
|Derek Wann, who holds a prestigious EPSRC Career Acceleration Fellowship, is performing electron diffraction research in Edinburgh, with the aim of carrying out experiments that include time resolution. Click below for more information.||The study of plants and soils is the domain of David Rankin. For more information about his past and present research in this field please click below.|
|Our group determines the structures of small molecules both by experiment
and by theory. The main experimental method used is electron diffraction and
molecular-orbital calculations and other experimental data are used to aid the
determination of a structure.
The group always welcomes the chance to determine the gas-phase structures of new molecules.
|We study the relationship between availability of metals in soil and their transfer into and utilisation in plants. We also use analysis of leaf waxes as a means of identifying plants, particularly rhododendrons.|
