* Richard Kahn presented an invited oral communication on anomalous scattering and macromolecular crystallography at REXS2011, a field of research where Richard had an eminent contribution. He could not write the associated article, as he died suddenly in october 2011. As close collaborators and friends of Richard, Eric Girard and Roger Fourme wrote this account dedicated to his memory.
