Seminar on Structural Analysis through Single-Crystal X-ray Diffraction

2014-5-26 (Mon) 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

The Scientific Instrument Renovation and Construction Support Center will be holding a "Seminar on Structural Analysis through Single-Crystal X-ray Diffraction" in order to deepen understanding of Single-Crystal X-ray Diffraction.

Structural Analysis through Single-Crystal X-ray Diffraction is a powerful method for analyzing the molecular structure of various organic compounds, organic metal compounds, and proteins.

This seminar on structural analysis with single-crystal X-ray diffraction is divided into 2 sessions related to experience, a session for beginners and another for persons who have had experience with this technology. Please attend the session that best suits your level.

Date and Time: Monday, May 26 -- 10:30 a.m. ~ 4:30 p.m.
Venue: Library Hall, Science and Engineering Library, Suita Campus
Capacity of the venue: 100
Intended for: Beginners and up (Faculty and staff members, graduate students, 4th year undergraduate students)
Lecturer: A lecturer has been invited from Rigaku Corporation

Program

Morning Session

Structural Analysis through Single-Crystal X-ray Diffraction for Beginners (for persons who want to learn about Structural Analysis through Single-Crystal X-ray Diffraction through persons who have less than 1 year of experience)

10:30 ~ 12:00 noon -- "Basics of Structural Analysis through Single-Crystal X-ray Diffraction: Crystal Centering and Mount"

Afternoon Session

Structural Analysis through Single-Crystal X-ray Diffraction for Experienced Persons (for persons who can say, "I've done it before and can conduct structural analysis alone")
1:00 ~ 2:00 p.m. -- "Refinement of irregular structure" (Mainly making use of SHELXL commands)
2:15 ~ 3:15 p.m. -- "Determining and evaluating the absolute structure"
3:30 ~ 4:30 p.m. -- "How to handle CheckCIF alerts"

Deadline for making Application: Friday, May 23
