Glasgow IUCR99

Welcome to the home page of the XVIII IUCR Congress to be held in Glasgow , Scotland from 4-13th August 1999.

The University of Glasgow has a long tradition in crystallography. From 1942 to 1970 J.M. Robertson held the Gardiner Chair of Chemistry and established Glasgow as a major centre for crystallography. In particular his work on phthalocyanine structures showed how isomorphous replacement could be used to obtain phase information. Robertson established a school of crystallography which was to become world famous where many leading crystallographers obtained their training.
