The recommended model for goniometer head is: HUBER 1004 or equivalent.

Capabilities/Accessories

  • Mo sealed X-ray tube (water cooled).

  • Sapphire 3 CCD detector.

  • CrysAlisPro software for diffractometer control and evaluation of single crystal and powder diffraction data.

  • CCD camera for visualization of crystals at different orientations.

  • The recommended model for goniometer head is: HUBER 1004 or equivalent. For frequent users it is recommended to purchase own goniometer heads.

  • Optical microscopes Nikon SMZ-2T and Olympus SZX12 equipped with a digital camera for mounting crystals and taking photographs.

Examples/Application areas

Single crystal X-ray diffraction is the ultimate analytical tool to determine geometrical parameters to a very high accuracy, for crystalline materials.

A necessary prerequisite are good quality single crystals with dimensions ranging from 50 to 500 microns.

Example 1, small molecule with heavy atoms present

Example 2, Accurate description of an hydrated saccharide
