Professor Alan Battersby

Portrait of arb1005

We are sad to announce the death of Professor Sir Alan Battersby. He died in February 2018, just short of what would have been his 93rd birthday. Sir Alan first came to the Department of Chemistry in 1969 and was later elected to the 1702 Chair of Chemistry here. He retired from this post in 1992 but remained active in the department long afterwards.  A special syposium of reminiscences was held in celebration of his 90th birthday in March 2015. You can read about it on the alumni pages of this website.
