The 2019 British Crystallographic Association Spring meeting was held at the University of Nottingham on Monday 15th – Thursday 18th April. The British Crystallographic Association was formed in 1982 and is the UK national association for crystallography. It is made up of four subject based groups: biological structures; chemical crystallography; industrial applications & physical crystallography, and the interdisciplinary Young Crystallographers group. With over 600 members, the BCA’s primary aims work to promote crystallography in research and the education of young people in the methods, possibilites and achievements of crystallographic science.
The annual Spring Meeting brings together all four subject groups and the Young Crystallographers group for a three day conference in the UK to encourage a strong interaction and exchange of ideas among post-graduate students and members.
CrystEngComm sponsored two poster prizes at this year’s meeting which were awarded to:
Georgia Scurfield, University of Oxford, for the poster entitled:
Furthering our understanding of modulation in molecular structures
Aneesa Al-Ani, University of Bath, for the poster entitled:
Engineering a new access route to metastable polymorphs with electrical confinement for enhanced pharmaceutical properties
The winners received a journal certificate and a book voucher.
CrystEngComm sends hearty congratulations to the winners!
