This textbook gives a concise introduction to modern crystal structure determination, emphasising both its theoretical background and the way it is actually carried out. The theoretical sections are supported by many illustrations, and lay emphasis on a good understanding rather than rigorous mathematics. The most important data collection techniques, and the methods of data reduction, structure solution and refinement are discussed from a practical point of view. Many tips and insights help readers to recognise and avoid possible errors and traps, and to judge the quality of results. The second edition has been considerably updated, especially the chapter on experimental methods, which is now mainly concerned with modern data collection using area-detectors.

This concise text describes the basic principles of crystal structure determination by X-ray diffraction and the application of these principles in practice. The technique is presented step-by-step and illustrated with a wide range of case studies, including the use of the most up-to-date equipment. Crystal Structure Determination explains how X-ray crystallography fits in with modern chemistry, why it is important, and what it can do, with the aim of enabling the reader to understand and assess structural results in books and research journals. There is additional coverage of related topics such as neutron diffraction and the application of computer databases. Mathematical treatment is kept at a relatively low level and is complemented by extensive illustrations and worked examples. This clear introduction to the topic will be an essential text for chemistry undergraduates. Other related science undergraduates (biochemists, environmental scientists, etc.) and postgraduate chemists will also find this book useful.

The advances in and applications of x-ray and neutron crystallography form the essence of this new edition of this classic textbook, while maintaining the overall plan of the book that has been well received in the academic community since the first edition in 1977. X-ray crystallography is a universal tool for studying molecular structure, and the complementary nature of neutron diffraction crystallography permits the location of atomic species in crystals which are not easily revealed by X-ray techniques alone, such as hydrogen atoms or other light atoms in the presence of heavier atoms. Thus, a chapter discussing the practice of neutron diffraction techniques, with examples, broadens the scope of the text in a highly desirable way. As with previous editions, the book contains problems to illustrate the work of each chapter, and detailed solutions are provided. Mathematical procedures related to the material of the main body of the book are not discussed in detail, but are quoted where needed with references to standard mathematical texts. To address the computational aspect of crystallography, the suite of computer programs from the fourth edition has been revised and expanded. The programs enable the reader to participate fully in many of the aspects of x-ray crystallography discussed in the book. In particular, the program system XRAY* is interactive, and enables the reader to follow through, at the monitor screen, the computational techniques involved in single-crystal structure determination, albeit in two dimensions, with the data sets provided. Exercises for students can be found in the book, and solutions are available to instructors.

'This textbook should definitely be considered for use in introductory courses in X-ray structure determination as it provides a good framework for course organisation. The concise treatment of the material (all of small-molecule X-ray crystallography in 265 pages) will work well when supplemented with lectures and additional class discussions.' -Acta Crystallographica'The book is very well written, has an excellent organisation of material and is filled with many illustrative examples of the subject matter.' -Acta CrystallographicaThis book provides a comprehensive and easy to use introduction to fundamental theory and techniques of structure analysis by X-ray diffraction. It will be an invaluable reference to X-ray crystallographers, practitioners of X-ray analysis and all those involved in materials characterization.

Crystallography is the mineral science whose name means 'lucid writing.' Long out of print, but now available again in an elegant revised edition, this extraordinary work of avant-garde literature explores the boundary between science and poetry, suggesting that to write with clarity in either discipline involves the most intense thought, much like an act of 'lucid dreaming.' The book reveals that, within the sediment of everyday language, poems are the crystalline formations. -- Back cover.
