Rigaku presents latest X-ray analytical solutions at 2019 Asian Crystallography Association Conference

Rigaku is a platinum sponsor, hosting workshops on single crystal and powder diffraction at the 16th Conference of the Asian Crystallographic Association.

Rigaku Corporation is pleased to announce its attendance at the 16th Conference of the Asian Crystallographic Association (AsCA 2019). Rigaku is a platinum sponsor of the event and is presenting its diverse line of single crystal X-ray diffraction (XRD) instrumentation at booth A07.

The conference, taking place December 16 – 20, 2019 at University Town (UTown) at the National University of Singapore, covers the major aspects of crystallography-related disciplines, including synchrotron/neutron, structural biology, chemical crystallography, materials and polymer science, crystal growth/crystallization, electron microscopy, and informatics.

A workshop presented by Rigaku, exploring the latest in techniques in single crystal and powder diffraction, will take place on Thursday, December 19 from 9:00 – 11:00 AM in the Global Learning Room.

Topics to be covered include: 

  • “How Small Can You Get? Micro-Crystals Measured with the HomeLab”
  • “Crystallization-free single crystal X-ray analysis – the crystalline sponge method”
  • “The direct derivation method: quantitative phase analysis with total scattered intensities calculated from chemical composition data”

Among the featured systems is the Rigaku XtaLAB Synergy-S X-ray diffractometer for single crystal X-ray diffraction. The system is based around the PhotonJet-S series of microfocus X-ray sources that incorporate continuously variable divergence slits. Using a combination of leading edge components and user-inspired software, joined together through a highly parallelized architecture, the XtaLAB Synergy-S system is designed to produce fast, precise data in an intelligent fashion.
