Powder crystal structure of organic crystals with high-res convergent beam optics

AppNote B-XRD1043: powder crystal structure of organic crystals


Previously, it was typical to conduct crystal structure analysis using the single crystal method. However, analysis of crystal structure using the single crystal method is difficult in the case of samples for which it is hard to produce single crystals, and samples for which crystal growth is difficult even if single crystals can be produced. In recent years, the precision of powder X-ray diffractometers has been improving, and thus it is becoming possible to conduct crystal structure analysis using powder samples. Here we show an example where a powder sample was measured, and structural analysis was conducted based on the obtained diffraction pattern.
