About the Author

Richard Dronskowski studied chemistry and physics at Münster University and gained his PhD from the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart. After one year as a Visiting Scientist at Cornell University and completing his lecturing qualification in 1995, he took up the chair of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry at RWTH Aachen University in 1997, as head of its Institute of Inorganic Chemistry. He has won the Kekulé and Liebig scholarships, the Otto Hahn medal awarded by the Max Planck Society, and the Chemistry Lecturer prize. In 2004, he became Visiting Professor at the Center of Interdisciplinary Research at Tohoku University, Sendai. Professor Dronskowski's research interests originate in the area of "theorimental" solid state chemistry, in particular the design, synthesis and structural as well as quantum-chemical characterization of low-valent, metastable, nitrogen-based, intermetallic and magnetic compounds.
