2nd joint AIC-SILS Conference

Firenze, Italy

15-18 September 2014

The second joint conference of the Italian Crystallographic Association (AIC) and of the Italian Synchrotron Radiation Society (SILS) was held in Florence.

The program selected by the Scientific committees will encourage the participation and contacts between members of the two groups involved, enabling the exchange of ideas in scientific fields all of which concern the study of the properties of condensed matter (such as crystal growth, nanoscience, methods and techniques for the determination of atomic, electronic and vibrational structure, molecular recognition, polymer and materials science, molecular medicine and structural biology).

7th Crystal form @ Bologna

Bologna, Italy

9-11 June 2013

A three-day convention was organized in Bologna by the group of Molecular Crystal Engineering (Prof. Dario Braga - University of Bologna) and by the spinoff company PolyCrystalLine s.r.l.

The state of the art in the preparation, screening and characterization of cystal forms (polymorphs, hydrates, co-crystals, salts, amorphous etc.) was discussed. Formulation applications and protocols, and structure-property relationships were reviewed and experiences on patenting and intellectual property issues were compared.
