Laboratory powder diffraction is a proven and trusted technique for pharma R&D but synchrotron powder diffraction pushes beyond the capabilities of conventional instrumentation. SPS-XRPD-3 will highlight the most exciting recent developments and opportunities in pharmaceutical R&D made possible by synchrotron XRPD. The meeting offers the chance to engage an active network of synchrotron, academic and industrial pharmaceutical scientists, promote awareness of this technique and lower the barriers to access synchrotron XRPD and total scattering techniques.
The Spring Pharmaceutical Synchrotron X-ray Powder Diffraction (SPS-XRPD 3) Workshop will take place on 18-20 May 2020, at the Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory, USA. Introductory lectures on powder diffraction and pair distribution function analysis will be given on the first day, along with beamline tours. The following 2-day meeting will provide a forum for scientists to discuss synchrotron XRD & related techniques, unique sample environments and their applications to pharmaceutical science. It is the 3rd meeting in the series, following workshops at Purdue University, USA (2018) and the Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland (2019).
