Event description
This free course is to provide training for undergraduate students that are using or will use crystallography in a project.

About this Event

This course will give the students a greater appreciation for crystallography in a wider academic context and provide some training that may aid a dissertation or project report.

The training programs available are as follows -

Weds 17th Feb 14:00 - 15:00 - Refining crystal structures (Olex2)

This workshop will provide a worked example of solving and refining a crystal structure using the Olex2 software. It is aimed at a beginner level, for those who have/could have X-ray diffraction data that needs working up into a crystal structure.

Weds 24th Feb 14:00 - 15:00 – Presenting and analysing crystal structures (Mercury)

This workshop will provide guidance on how much to ‘trust’ a crystal structure i.e. validation. It will then comprehensively demonstrate how a crystal structure can be presented and comprehensively analysed using the Mercury software.

Weds 3rd Mar 14:00 - 15:00 – Augmenting your background/literature review with the CSD (WebCSD/Conquest/PSDS)

Why not underpin your literature review with crystal structure data? This workshop will demonstrate how to use the Cambridge Structural Database, via WebCSD, Conquest and related tools, to put your crystal structure or chemistry in context with other crystal structures and/or perform database searches and mining.

You can sign up to any or all of the relevant workshops but please be sure to attend any workshops you have a ticket for as places are extremely limited.

Registered participants will receive an email before the event with further instructions on the freely available software required and how to join the event. For further information contact Robert Bannister (R.D.Bannister@soton.ac.uk) or visit http://www.ncs.ac.uk/training/events/
