Phil Coppens’ Structure One of World’s Top 10

An x-ray crystal structure solved by Philip Coppens, a founding member of ChemMatCARS, has been chosen by Chemical&Engineering News as one of the world’s top 10 crystal structures ever solved.  The structure, of sodium nitroprusside was studied in the framework of pioneering research on excited state crystalline structures.  Large part of the relevant experimental work was performed at the University of Chicago’s ChemMatCARS beamline and, more recently, the BioCARS beamline, at the APS.
