The Wilson Group are a vibrant bunch, based in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Bath. We typically have around 10-12 members.
Our laboratory and main base is in Building 1-South (centred around Laboratory 1.49), on the Bath campus, but you will also frequently find us based within our major collaborations, the CMAC Crystallisation Centre at the University of Strathclyde, the Diamond Light Source and the Research Complex at Harwell.
Members of the group are also embedded within the M4 Metastable Materials research programme in Bath.
As well as the exciting range of research in which we are involved, we also have many other group activities; most recent activities include Canal boating, regular Spectroscopy in a Suitcase events, the South-West Big Bang Fair, kayaking on the River Wye and a forthcoming visit to the "Go Ape" outdoor adventure activity.

Chick has recently presented our work in hydrogen bonding, crystal engineering, functional materials design, self-assembly and crystallisation at a Conference celebrating 50 years of the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC).
He has also recently delivered a Sicnce Cafe in Bath on "Mysterious cases osf Misbehaving Moleciles", and a public talk on "Disaster Prevention in the Molecular World" at the Pint of Science festival.
Dr Karen Robertson recently presented her development work on the KRAIC crystalliser at the BACG Annual meeting.
Anneke Klapwijk and L:auren Agew won their respective "best year presentation" prizes at the CMAC Summer School held in Crieff, Perthshire
Lucy Saunders gave a talk at the BCA Young Crystallographers' Meeting in York, on her functional molecular materials developments
