Session Overview
MS-52: Combining X-ray diffraction and spectroscopy to characterise materials
Wednesday, 18/Aug/2021:
2:45pm - 5:10pm

Session Chair: Carlo Meneghini
Session Chair: Siegbert Schmid
Location: Terrace 2A

130 2nd floor

Invited: Ilaria Carlomagno (Italy), Marco Giorgetti (Italy)

Session Abstract

Structural and electronic information obtainable from XAS analysis are widely complementary with those from XRPD. XAS provides details about the electronic state, local coordination chemistry and atomic structure around the absorber in the few Å scale, while XRPD describes the crystallographic structure of long range coherent phases. These techniques can be combined to achieve reliable understanding of the physico-chemical properties of complex systems such as natural bio-geo-chemical compounds and novel materials. This symposium could be shared also with the commission on Powder diffraction
