Crystal Engineering Group
Our next meeting:
9th Crystal Forms@BO Bologna 4-6th June 2017 Workshop on:
"Crystallization by Design"
Design, synthesis, investigation and applications of molecular crystalline materials: (1) Synthesis and properties of new crystal forms (polymorphs, solvates, molecular and ionic co-crystals, coordination compounds with bio-compatible metals) of organic molecules of pharmaceutical and agrochemical interest; (2) Supramolecular gels with d-block metals; (3) Luminescent MOFs of copper(I) and thin-films for OLED applications; (4) Tuning the luminescence of molecular solids via functionalization or co-crystallization; (5) Crystal engineering of molecular organic semiconductors; (6) Structural determination from powder data. Techniques: solution and solvent-free synthesis, X-ray diffraction, DSC, TGA, hot stage microscopy.
