OC09 - Order-Disorder Phase Transition Between High- and Low-z' Crystal Structures of n,c-Protected Dipeptide
Dr Ryusei OKETANI
OSAKA UNIVERSITY, Toyonaka, Japan
Dr. Ryusei Oketani is currently an assistant professor at Osaka University, Japan. He received PhD in Chemistry in 2019 from University of Rouen Normandy under supervision of Prof. Pascal Cardinael. His research interests include chiral organic crystalline materials particularly their resolution and phase transition behaviors based on thermodynamical and kinetic study. Since 2021, he started his academic career at Osaka University and launched new research topics on porous organic materials and chiral resolution. In this presentation, he will talk about order-disorder phase transition behavior of simple dipeptide compound in crystalline state by means of variant temperature single crystal X-ray diffraction, SHG measurement, and general thermal analysis technique. Interestingly, the crystal forms with high number of molecules in asymmetric unit, i.e., Z’ = 8. He will also discuss on the theoretical study of the high-Z’ structure from viewpoint of lattice energy calculation.
OC10 - Investigating the Role of Stochastic Ice Nucleation in the Freezing Process of Biopharmaceuticals
Mr Leif-Thore DECK
ETH ZURICH, Zurich, Switzerland
Leif-Thore Deck pursues his doctoral studies at ETH Zürich’s Separation Processes Laboratory with Prof. Marco Mazzotti in the field of crystallization applied to pharmaceutical manufacturing. Leif graduated from ETH Zürich in 2020 with a M.Sc. in Chemical and Bioengineering. During his studies, he spent half a year each at the National University of Singapore and at MIT.
In a research project funded by Janssen J&J, Leif investigates the role of stochastic ice nucleation in pharmaceutical freezing processes via modeling and experiments. Stochastic nucleation poses a major challenge in the design and optimization of pharmaceutical processes that involve freezing in vials. It leads to an inherent vial-to-vial variability in thermal evolution that may negatively affect both process behavior and product quality. A majority of biopharmaceuticals, including most commercially available COVID-19 vaccines, undergo freezing or freeze-drying. They thus may benefit from a deepened understanding of ice nucleation.

OC12 - Crystallization Under Defined Non-equilibrium Conditions
Prof. Yves GEERTS
ULB, Brussels, Belgium
Yves Geerts had the chance to be among the first Erasmus students in the eighties.
He went to Strasbourg, France, to conduct an undergraduate research project supervised by Jean-Pierre Sauvage and Christiane Dietrich-Buchecker and devoted to the synthesis and photophysical properties of Cu (I) complexes.
After working on polymer tribology for DSM, in the Netherlands, he started doctoral researches on the morphology of polymer blends under the supervision of Georges Geuskens.
He obtained from ULB his doctoral title in Sciences with summa cum laude, in 1993.
Attracted by synthetic polymer chemistry, he went, for a first post-doctoral stay, supported by a Marie-Curie fellowship, and supervised by Klaus Müllen at the Max-Planck-Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz.
He obtained a Fulbright fellowship and joined MIT to synthesize electroluminescent block copolymers in the group of the Noble Laureate Richard Schrock.
He returned then for two more years to Max-Planck-Institute for Polymer Research as research associate. During this period, he was involved in the synthesis of polycatenanes, conjugated oligomers and discotic liquid crystals.
In 1997, he accepted a tenured position of research associate of the National Fund for Scientific Research (FNRS). Since 1999, he is professor of chemistry and the head of the Laboratory of Polymer Chemistry. Soon after, he started to be active at the European level with the coordination of the FP5-DISCEL project (2001-2004) that was followed by the FP6-NAIMO project (2004-2008) to which 22 industrial and academic partners contributed and that generated 360 publications, 12 patents, and 2 industrial technologies. Then, he has coordinated the FP7-ONE-P project (2009-2011) project that has put together 28 industries, universities and research centers to implement a coherent work plan aiming at developing the missing materials for the industrialization of organic electronics in Europe. Currently, he is coordinating two Marie Sklodowska Curie project.
His scientific interests include the design, the synthesis and the characterization of novel organic materials to study spin, charge, and heat transport, as well as non-equilibrium phenomena and chiral symmetry breaking.
