The China-India-Singapore symposium series on “Crystal Engineering” was conceived with the idea to bring together researchers working in the field of crystal engineering from the countries China, India, and Singapore. This symposium series was aimed to discuss and acknowledge recent advances in the field of crystal engineering happening in the south Asian region.
The first China-India-Singapore Symposium on Crystal Engineering (CISSCE) was held at National University of Singapore (NUS) from 30th July – 2nd August, 2010. The 2nd China-India-Singapore Symposium on Crystal Engineering was recently held at Guangzhou, China during 20th – 23rd November 2012. A total of 37 researchers from China, India and Singapore presented their work highlighting recent deveopments in the fields of organic, bioorganic, metal organic hybrid (metal complexes and coordination polymers), pharmaceutical and organic-semiconductor materials achieved through the applications of crystal engineering.
This report is an attempt to provide the reader with a glimpse of some of the recent research work undergoing in various laboratories in China, India and Singapore in the field of crystal engineering that was discussed in the symposium.
