This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience. We will cover the following areas in an informal and friendly setting:

  • Structure Solution

  • Structure Refinement & Model Building

  • Restraints & Constraints

  • Working with Disordered Structures

  • Solvent Masking the Olex2 way

  • Making Pictures

  • CIF file Generation in Olex2

  • Finishing Structures for Publication

 

Before you attend the workshop, you may want to have a look at some of our videos on our YouTube channel:

There are plenty of videos -- from getting started with Olex2 through to explaining more complicated issues like disorder modelling across symmetry elements.

8.30am

Set-up Session


Please bring your own Laptops along to the workshop. It would also be very useful if you had set up Olex2 and any other crystallographic software (ShelXL, PLATON) before the workshop starts. This half-hour, pre-workshop session is your chance to sort out any last-minute problems you might have experienced.


9.00am

Introduction to Olex2


This hour will be lecture-style -- we will introduce the key concepts or working with Olex2 and work through one or two very simple example structures.

10.00am

It’s your turn now!


Work for yourself, or pair up in teams -- and try for yourself what we have covered in the previous section. If it’s all familiar to you, work on your own samples (don’t forget to bring some!). We will be here to help! There will be a coffee break during this three-hour session!

12.00am

Working Lunch


A lunchbox is included in the registration fee.

14.00pm

Advanced topics in Olex2


Another lecture-style session: disorder modelling, solvent masking, HAR -- anything that you might want to find out about. We will cover this here.

2.30pm

Working out Advanced Techniques


With our help, you are now free to try anything you may want to tackle. This could be simple cases, complicated sample disorder or your own structures -- the choice is yours!

Revision and Further functionality of Olex2


We will recap the previous days' work and move towards more advanced functionality. The main focus will be on modelling disordered structures at various levels.

It’s your turn now (again!).


Work for yourself, or pair up in teams -- and try for yourself what we have covered in the previous section. If it’s all familiar to you, work on your own samples (don’t forget to bring some!). We will be here to help! There will be a coffee break during this three-hour session!
