Crystal Forms @ Bologna

Bologna 19-21 Gennaio 2012

The quest for new crystal forms has become one of the most challenging issues in the solid state sciences with impacts on the production, marketing and intellectual property protection of molecular materials such as active pharmaceutical ingredients. The workshop will bring together top-notch scientists from industry and academy to discuss in a friendly and informal atmosphere issues at the frontier of this burgeoning field of research, from crystal structure prediction, crystal engineering, synthesis of new crystal forms, polymorphs, solvates and co-crystals screening to the intellectual property issues of interest to pharma companies. The three-day meeting is organized by the group of Molecular Crystal Engineering (Prof. Dario Braga - University of Bologna) and by PolyCrystalLine s.r.l., the company expert on crystal forms.
