Accuracy of crystal structures obtained from powder diffraction data - A Satellite of EPDIC13

27 Oct 2012 - 28 Oct 2012 - Grenoble, France

Whilst powder diffraction experiments undoubtedly have an information content that compares poorly with that of single crystal experiments, the last decade has seen an explosion of complex structures, both organic and inorganic, solved and refined from powder diffraction data. As practitioners of powder diffraction continue to push the limits of what can be achieved, they must increasingly consider the limitations of their data and the accuracy of their resultant structures. This timely meeting will consider all aspects of this process, from data collection through to structure checking.  In particular, it will aim to pull together keys aspects of experimental practice, chemical prior knowledge and ab-initio computational methods into a coherent whole. As such, it will be of interest not only to those who use powder diffraction as part of their characterisation suite, but also to those who are interested in learning about the state-of-the-art in powder diffraction in respect of reporting crystal structures.
