Event Name

XV Intensive Teaching School in X-ray Structure Analysis

Start Date 21st Mar 2015
End Date 29th Mar 2015
The school is intented primarily for younger scientists with some experience of structure analysis who wish to improve their understanding of the underlying principles and practice.

The main focus of the school is on chemical and materials science. Topics to be covered will include:

  • Growth and evaluation of non-macromolecular crystals
  • Space group determination
  • Background theory to data acquisition for small molecules and inorganics
  • Practical aspects of data collection
  • Practical aspects of data processing
  • Fourier syntheses
  • Patterson syntheses and direct methods for crystal structure determination
  • Charge flipping
  • Refinement of inorganic, organic and metal-organic structures
  • Derivation of results
  • Random and systematic errors
  • Twinning
  • Validation of results
  • Crystallographic databases (CSD, ICSD, etc)
