Inscription.

Chemistry Department
University College London

During the period 1930-1970
Professor Sir Christopher Ingold
pioneered our understanding of the
electronic basis of structure, mechanism
and reactivity in organic chemistry,
which is fundamental to
modern-day chemistry.

Also see . . .  Christopher Kelk Ingold (Wikipedia). "Sir Christopher Kelk Ingold FRS (28 October 1893 – 8 December 1970) was a British chemist based in Leeds and London. His groundbreaking work in the 1920s and 1930s on reaction mechanisms and the electronic structure of organic compounds was responsible for the introduction into mainstream chemistry of concepts such as nucleophile, electrophile, inductive and resonance effects, and such descriptors as SN1, SN2, E1, and E2. He also was a co-author of the Cahn–Ingold–Prelog priority rules. Ingold is regarded as one of the chief pioneers of physical organic chemistry." (Submitted on April 16, 2018.)
