Project Description

The increasing demand from both academic and industrial sectors has created an urgent need for enhancement and extension of the ''Integrated Victorian X-Ray Structural Determination and Materials Characterisation Facility. This proposal achieves this aim by extending the collaborating institutes to include Monash University and adding modern single-crystal, two-dimensional microdiffraction, and wavelength dispersive xrf systems. The result will provide significantly enhanced characterisation and analysis facilities and enable new areas of research to be developed in organic and inorganic synthesis, material chemistry, polymer chemistry, and food, environmental and forensic sciences.
