Single Crystal Diffraction
The precise determination of the three-dimensional crystal structure of a compound is crucial to understanding the properties and function of the material. This is a key task in drug design and materials research where compounds of both chemical and biological interest are studied - for example new synthetic chemicals, catalysts, pharmaceuticals, natural products, proteins, and minerals. Generally, single crystal diffraction (SCD) is the method of choice for obtaining very accurate three-dimensional structural models.
