Our group was awarded an International Excellence (KH) OTKA grant

The Chemical Crystallography Group was awarded an International Excellence (KH) OTKA grant: “Research team with significant achievements of internationally outstanding impact “. Title: Supramolecular chemistry in solid state Principal Investigator: Petra Bombicz Participants: Nóra Veronika May Laura Nagyné Bereczki Roberta Palkó Tamás Holczbauer Abstract: Supramolecular chemistry is a highly interdisciplinary field of science covering chemical, physical and biological features. The supramolecular interactions are responsible for the self-assembly of molecules in liquid and solid states. Study of non-covalent interactions is crucial Read More …

Tamás Holczbauer has received a postdoctoral (PD) OTKA grant

Title: Supramolecular interactions and polymorphy, effect of temperature and pressure Abstract: Most of the appliances we use in everyday life are made of solid state materials for example drug, dye or casual objects. The function and lifetime of these objects are important. The understanding and the manipulation of secondary interactions in solid state may provide longer lifetime, different functions, new application for the objects. For example a new polymorph of a known drug may be more advantageous for human consumption, and less Read More …

Participation on the 31th European Crystallographic Meeting

  The 31st European Crystallographic Meeting, ECM31, of the European Crystallographic Association took place in the Palace of Exhibition and Congresses (PEC) in Oviedo, Asturias, from 22-27 August 2018. ECM31 was setting up an attractive programme covering the latest advances in crystallography and related sciences to attract young and senior scientists as well as companies and general public.

FWO-MTA mobility project – first visit

By the help of a joint FWO-MTA mobility grant Dr. Vincent Ching and Kevin Nys visited our laboratory between 12-16 June 2018. The title of the project is “Structural analysis of copper-drug complexes relevant for chelation therapy by using pulsed-EPR and SXRD methods”. By the help of this FWO-MTA mobility grant our goal is to use pulsed-EPR methods to determine the couplings of far ligand protons for the CuL2 complexes of some hydroxypyridinecarboxylic acids (HPC) in order to detect the Read More …

Professor Alajos Kálmán passed away on 26th December 2017.

He was one of the most prominent scientists in crystallography of our time. He was a most productive, widely respected, much-admired and inspiring scientific leader. We recall him as an enthusiastic and entertaining head, colleague, teacher and friend who loved crystallography and made a huge contribution to it. We treasure our memories with him. He will be missed by the crystallographic community. Biography    

Petra Bombicz is appointed to be the Editor-in-Chief of Crystallography Reviews from 1st January 2018.

Crystallography Reviews publishes English language reviews on topics in crystallography and crystal growth, covering all theoretical and applied aspects of biological, chemical, industrial, mineralogical and physical crystallography. The intended readership is the crystallographic community at large, as well as scientists working in related fields of interest.
