William Nunn Lipscomb (1919-2011), US chemist, holding a molecular model. Lipscomb studied the chemistry of a group of inorganic chemicals called boranes (compounds of boron and hydrogen). He deduced their molecular structure using X-ray crystallography. This improved understanding of their chemical bonding. From 1959, Lipscomb worked at Harvard University, USA. He wrote the book Boron Hydrides (1963), and was awarded the 1976 Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his work on boranes. Photographed at the American Crystallographic Association (ACA). The ACA was founded in 1949, and Lipscombe was its President in 1955.Restrictions:.
