Pharmaceutical Powder X-ray Diffraction Symposium - PPXRD-2, December 9-12, 2002

NOTE: The schedules and guidelines in this area of the ICDD website are left here for archival purposes. 

The ICDD is pleased to present the second symposium on Pharmaceutical Powder X-ray Diffraction, December 9-12, 2002 in Concordville, PA, U.S.A. PPXRD-2 focused on topics of interest to scientists and engineers in the pharmaceutical industry using powder x-ray diffraction. The ICDD hopes to create a forum for these two fields to discuss latest developments, exchange ideas and gain knowledge from valuable lectures all surrounding the XRD and pharmaceutical industries.

Registration Information

Who should attend PPXRD-2? Anyone who has asked the following questions:

  • Is my material pure in crystal form?
  • Do I make the most of my XRPD data?
  • What XRPD data do I need to construct a good patent?
  • How can I use SAXS as a complementary characterization tool?
