CF@BO 2021, September 10 – 11


Because of the uncertainties still associated with the pandemic of SARS-COVID-19 the 11th edition of the Bologna Convention on Crystal Forms CF@Bo n. 11 will take place in online mode. As in the past occasions the meeting will bring together, albeit in virtual mode, 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
Considering the online setting, the duration of the talks will be of 20 minutes and each section will be followed by a round table discussions and flash presentation by your participants aiming to a vivacious, informal, exchange of ideas with a focus 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.

As for all previous meetings of this series initiated in 2006, CF@Bo n. 11 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 online convention will take place on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 September on the online platforms provided by the University of Bologna.

There will be no registration fees.

A number of top notch scientists have already accepted the invitation to deliver a talk at the convention. Preliminary programme will be published in March.
