Asian Structural Chemistry Workshop

Perth, Western Australia, Australia

Autumn 1987

A group of crystallographers from South East Asia attended a post lUCr Congress workshop at the University of Western Australia last month. Syd Hall, Allan White and Brian Skelton of Chemistry conducted the workshop, which provided a refresher course on all stages of structural chemistry and crystallographic analysis. The workshop was financed by a number of donor agencies through the Asian Coordinating Group for Chemistry operating under the auspices of UNESCO.

Each participant collected data on several structures and carried out all of the necessary structure analysis calculations. During the course of the workshop 21 structures were solved and refined. Some of the analyses were done using the XTAL System installed on an IBM PC - Definicon co-processor. This combination provides a low-cost computing facility appropriate for many of the crystallography groups in the region.
