Chemical crystallography

Determine the three dimensional structure of molecules

Chemical crystallographySometimes referred to as small molecule crystallography, this technique employs single crystal X-ray diffraction (SXRD) to unambiguously determine the three dimensional structure of molecules. The technique involves the use of crystallography to study problems which are primarily of a chemical nature and provides accurate and precise measurements of molecular dimensions in a way that no other method can approach. Chemical crystallography may be applied to compounds of both chemical and biological interest, including: new synthetic chemicals, catalysts, pharmaceuticals, and natural products.
