Department of Chemistry - University of Zurich

The Linden Research Group


Prof. em. Dr. Anthony Linden

Department of Chemistry

Prof. Linden was the Director of the X-ray Crystallography Facility, initially in the Institute of Organic Chemistry and subsequently in the Department of Chemistry, of the University of Zurich, Switzerland from October 1989 to May 2022. He retired at the end of May 2022.

Prof. Linden's interests cover a broad range of questions in Chemical Crystallography and single-crystal X-ray diffraction is used as the main investigative tool. Topics include molecular interactions and their relationship to structural properties, aspects of hydrogen bonding and how this drives the supramolecular and structural properties of materials, and network and framework structures.

Prof. Linden is still actively involved in teaching crystallography at various schools and workshops, including as a director of the Zurich School of Crystallography.
