We thought there is no better time to introduce an intriguing webinar on an even more intriguing subject: electron diffraction. Electron diffraction is one of the most rapidly evolving fields in chemistry and crystallography.

For a series of five consecutive months, ELDICO has set up webinars with renowned scientists in the field of 3D-Electron Diffraction (3D-ED). Starting November 10th, these ED pioneers, among which Mauro Gemmi, Ute Kolb and Simon Parsons, will provide an ABC on nano-crystallography, valuable insights from the industry, best practices, and many other stimulating subjects. Our first invited speaker is Dr. Tim Grüne, Head of Centre for X-Ray Structure Analysis at University of Vienna and Member of the Scientific Advisory Board at ELDICO. Covered topics are the technology itself and its applications from small molecules, over MOFs to biomolecules. The commercial aspects of the technology will also be tackled in order to demonstrate the full disruptive potential electron diffraction will have in the future.

Meet the speakers:

Tuesday, 10th of November, 3pm-4pm.
