2ème Ecole de Cristallographie au Sénégal (20 novembre au 02 décembre 2017)

Crystallography is an interdisciplinary science that finds application in technological areas of strategic importance for emerging countries, such as cement, mining, electronic and pharmaceutical research. Special emphasis will be placed on the role of advanced synchrotron light sources.

Description :

Crystallography enables to access the inner properties of matter and accurate atomic structures of molecules, materials, proteins and any kind of compound; without the knowledge of the structure, the functionality of a given material cannot be understood and therefore improved. Mining and cement companies use crystallography for quality and purity control and for research aimed at developing novel materials; the pharmaceutical industry uses crystallography to identify the correct polymorph and understanding the functionality of new medicines. Today synchrotron light sources complement laboratory X-ray equipment and allow access to unprecedented capabilities. Students will be encouraged to test their understanding on crystallography using single crystal and powder portable diffractometers, which will be installed on site for at least the duration of the school.
