January, 2017: A two-day SINE2020 Work Package 5: Chemical Deuteration meeting was recently hosted by the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble, France. The event was well-attended, with all of those from ISIS, ILL, FZJ and ESS involved in the Chemical Deuteration project joining the meeting.
Reports from each of the facilities, detailing progress made towards their projects and deliverable objectives, opened the meeting on 18th January. More information about the projects being undertaken by the Deuteration Network can be found here. Kun Ma, who recently joined the ISIS Deuteration Facility, was welcomed to the network.
Subsequent sessions were allocated to the discussion of a collaborative User Workshop for chemical deuteration, to be hosted by ISIS in Oxford, UK in May 2017; methods to survey the requirements of the neutron scattering community for deuterated chemicals; and strategies to ensure the sustainability of the Deuteration Network into the future.
Thank you to Rachel Morrison for orchestrating a very successful meeting, and for all members of the network for their attendance and enthusiastic contribution!
