Anthony Stace

Professor Anthony Stace FRS


Elected: 2002


Anthony Stace is a chemist and leading expert in microclustering — the study of how the properties of tiny collections of matter up to several hundred atoms in size evolve to evoke bulk behaviour. The field can solve problems such as estimating the number of water molecules needed to dissolve salt and has important implications for atmospheric chemistry.

Anthony has made several key contributions, many of which were ‘firsts’ in the observation and measurement of particular phenomena or the identification of a correlation. His work has been crucial in increasing our fundamental understanding of how materials change between solid, liquid, gas and plasma states.

He is currently Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of Nottingham and has published around 100 papers in his field. He is a member of the Faraday Council and the Royal Society of Chemistry. Amongst other awards, Anthony received the 1995 Tilden Prize of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
