  • Learn the basics of particle surface analysis using CCDC’s CSD-Particle software in this CSDU (self-guided on-demand training) module “Surface Analysis with CSD-Particle”. This video forms part of a short course that introduces scientists – crystallographers, pharmaceutical chemists and surface scientists, among others, to mining the wealth of knowledge in the Cambridge Structural Database to gain insights into particle surface properties. In this CSDU module we will see how to use CSD-Particle’s Surface Analysis software to probe crystal surface properties including the surface chemistry, charge and roughness, through videos, demonstrations, guided tutorials, and a test that can be completed at the end to earn a certificate. In this introductory video lesson, we will cover: -00:06 Introduction to surface analysis and descriptors in CSD-particle -01:45 Full Interaction Maps on Surface -02:28 Exploring the CSD-Particle menu in Mercury -02:35 Surface Analysis interface and options: defining the surface to calculate, viewing the results and options for visualizing the surfaces -04:52 Calculating and viewing Full Interaction Maps on Surface After watching this video, continue your CSDU module with the next video linked in the playlist.
