Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry


Chemical Crystallography

Crystallographic methods provide detailed atomic-level descriptions of crystalline solids, including molecular structure and geometrical information on intermolecular interactions.

Single-crystal and powder X-ray diffraction are core analytical techniques within the chemical sciences, which support and augment a broad range of research within the Department. Modern diffraction instruments, applied at both laboratory and synchrotron sources, enable complex chemical problems to be tackled using crystallographic methods: for example, characterizing and understanding the consequences of disorder in molecular crystals or monitoring chemical changes in single crystals or crystalline powders.
