  • Date:     Tuesday, 20. August 2019
  • Time:    10:00 - 12:00
  • Venue:  Audimax

Chirality at molecular and crystalline level is of great importance for the properties of new materials in a broad range of applications. MS30 invites presentations about (crystal engineering) approaches to making chiral crystals and/or (novel) experimental methods to investigate chirality in crystals.
