Working Group Chemical Crystallography

The Working Group Chemical Crystallography Group (ChemKrist) of the GDCh Division of Analytical Chemistry is an association of individuals and companies who use crystal structure analysis as an analytical method for solving chemical problems. Founded in 1982 as KSAM, the working group group has been called ChemKrist since 1999.

The working group pursues the objectives:


  • Intensification of the exchange of ideas within chemistry, in particular advising working groups that are facing structural chemical problems
  • Discussion forum for all areas of application of diffraction methods for solving chemical problems
  • Strengthening of the cooperation in the field of hardware and software as well as in the equipment sector, representation of user interests in dialogue with manufacturing companies
  • Implementation of introductory and advanced training events for both young scientists and experienced users
  • Influence on the design and use of databases and publications
  • Special representation of the interests of the colleagues organized in the GDCh
  • Close contact with the German Society for Crystallography
