TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (PRWEB) January 21, 2020
Rigaku Corporation will present a workshop on X-ray analysis techniques at the 1st Annual Florida State University Rigaku Symposium and Workshop on X-ray Crystallography and Diffraction. The event, to be held in conjunction with the Florida State University Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, will take place Friday and Saturday, January 24th and 25th, at the Chemical Sciences Laboratory at Florida State University in Tallahassee.
It will cover both single crystal and powder X-ray diffraction methods. Single crystal X-ray diffraction is used to determine the three dimensional structure of molecules. For materials that cannot be prepared as single crystals of appropriate size and quality for conventional single crystal diffraction studies, structure determination from powder diffraction data represents a viable approach for understanding the structural properties of the material of interest.
Informative talks and poster sessions will take place on Friday; hands-on workshops will be held on Saturday, led by Rigaku Application Scientists. Systems will include the Rigaku XtaLAB mini benchtop chemical crystallography system, with the latest version of CrysAlisPro single crystal X-ray diffraction data collection and processing software, and the new sixth generation Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop X-ray diffractometer. Also featured will be the Rigaku XtaLAB Synergy-S single or dual microfocus X-ray diffractometer for small molecule 3D structure analysis.
Registration information, along with a program itinerary and list of invited speakers is available from the Rigaku global website at http://www.rigaku.com/mailers/2020/fsu.
