X-Ray crystallography

The X-ray crystallography suite is situated in 5.62 and provides both single crystal and powder diffraction facilities for staff, students and commercial customers.

We currently have 6 X-Ray diffractometers capable of collecting data for single crystal collections, powder XRD and Small Angle X-Ray Scattering (SAXS) measurements.

For single crystal diffraction we can provide a 'walk up service' from data collection through structure determination and refinement to a completed CIF file. To full training for self collection, solution, refinement and final CIF creation.

For powder XRD we can provide training in operation of the two diffractometers and advise on collection parameters and interpretation of results.

The SAXS is a state-of-the-art instrument and training can be provided in it is operation, limited assistance is available for interpretation of results.

For further information please contact Dr George Whitehead or Dr Inigo Vitorica-yrezabal.
