X-Ray Structure Determination: A Practical Guide


Closely follows an actual structural determination. After some introductory material on the nature of x-rays, the diffraction process, and the internal geometry of crystals, the selection and preparation of a crystal are considered. Techniques of measuring raw x-ray data are covered, plus their reduction into a useable form. The second part discusses both traditional and novel methods of solving the "phase" problem, the principal difficulty in x-ray structure determination. The third part considers how to extract the most ...
