Ab initio powder structure analysis for polymorphism and phase transformation studies with pharmaceutical applications

Comments

Chemico-physical properties of solid organic compounds considerably depend on their crystal structures. The microsymposium offers a platform of discussion on the improvement of existing methodologies of ab-initio structure solutions applied to organic compounds and the development of new ones. Examples of applications using powder diffraction data (X-rays, neutrons and electron powder diffraction) will be given, mainly in the field of pharmaceuticals, but also other organic compounds such as agrochemicals, organic pigments and proteins. Related topics such as detection and quantification of polymorphic forms with powder diffraction data are also covered.
