A Practical Guide to Solving Single Crystal Structures

 

This webpage hosts a guide to solving crystal structures using WinGX together with other well know crystallographic packages such as Platon and Mercury. Currently Chapter 1 (describing the theory behind crystallography at a very basic level) is missing and will be added later. This was however covered in the lectures and can be found in any crystallography text book. In addition, a fifth chapter describing the structure solution of disordered structures still has be added.

 

 

 

The latest version of the guide is 15 Mar 2006 and will be updated from time to time.
