Absolute Structure of L-Alanine

AppNote SMX007: Novel techniques in determining the absolute structure of a light atom-containing molecules


Determining the absolute structure of light-atom organic molecules is a developing field with several research groups working on novel statistical methods in data refinement. All of these methods require precise experimental determination of very small differences in the intensities of related reflections. With high intensity sources and ultra-sensitive, low noise detectors coupled with efficient data collection strategies Rigaku Oxford Diffraction’s micro-focus SuperNova X-ray diffractometer is well suited to this field.
