CF@BO 2019


ABOUT THE CONVENTION

The investigation and optimization of crystal forms are at the forefront of industrial as well as fundamental research.

The event will bring together academic and industrial experts interested in sharing experience and discussing perspectives and new challenges regarding:

  • Recent advances in solid forms discovery
  • Synthesis and properties of crystal forms
  • Multicomponent crystal forms
  • Intellectual property issues

En route to the 10th Bologna’s convention on crystal forms

The meeting brings together young and senior scientists from academy and industry in an informal, highly productive, dense but relaxed, two and half days forum focused on the state of the art on the investigation of crystal polymorphism, salts, co-crystals, solvated and amorphous solids, their characterization and use in the pharma and agrochemical sectors. Intellectual property issues will also be discussed.

As for all previous meetings of this series initiated in 2006, CF@Bo n. 10 is organized jointly by the group of Molecular Crystal Engineering of the University of Bologna, the oldest University of the western world, and by the former spinoff company PolyCrystalLine spa.

The convention will begin on Sunday 9 June at 2 p.m. at the University of Bologna, and proceed on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 at the Aemilia Hotel close to the University and the town centre.

Early bird registration will be open in January 2019. As we are beginning to organize the scientific programme we are happy to inform that a number of scientists from university, research centres and companies have already expressed their interest in contributing (see below). Further contributions are expected. Partecipants will also have the opportunity to present their work in the poster session that will take place in the afternoon of Monday 10 .

WHY ATTEND?

The convention will address not only issues at the frontier of the field, where “curiosity driven” and applied research interplay in a synergistic way, but also the practical implications in defining crystallization techniques and developing process control.
