This book provides a clear and very broadly based introduction to crystallography, light, X-ray and electron diffraction - a knowledge which is essential to students in a wide range of scientific disciplines but which is otherwise generally covered in subject-specific and more mathematically detailed by: X-ray crystallography is an established method for studying the structure of proteins and other macromolecules. As the importance of proteins grows, researchers in many fields have found that a working knowledge of X-ray diffraction is an indispensable tool/5(7). Written by an experienced university teacher, this textbook is based on the authors lectures, and is designed to answer students questions rather than delving into obscure details. The well-balanced approach gives precedence to a visual, intuitive understanding, with only as much math as is necessary. The author covers the topic of symmetry in crystals from basic elements to physical. As a self-study guide, course primer or teaching aid, Borchardt-Ott's Crystallography is the perfect textbook for students and teachers alike. In fact, it can be used by crystallographers, chemists, mineralogists, geologists and physicists. Based on the author's more than 25 years of teachingBrand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
“For more advanced students Giacovazzo is a must.” Short books that are quite useful for beginners are Introduction to Crystallography by Donald E. Sands (January 7, ) ISBN “A good addition to a practical methods course.” Cystallography Made Crystal Clear by: Gale Rhodes (Febru ) ISBN File Size: 12KB. Advanced Search Citation Search. Search term. Advanced Search Citation Search. Login / Register this new edition of a classic text presents a unified approach to crystallography and to the defects found within crystals. The book combines the classical and exact description of symmetry of a perfect crystal with the possible geometries of the. X-ray diffraction crystallography for powder samples is a well-established and widely used method. It is applied to materials characterization to reveal the atomic scale structure of . Provides the tools needed to master and apply the fundamentals of polymer crystallography. Using core concepts in physics, chemistry, polymer science and engineering, this book sheds new light on the complex field of polymer crystallography, enabling readers to evaluate polymer crystallization data and determine the best methods to use for their investigations.
X-ray crystallography is used for analyzing the molecular conformations of large biomolecules. Neutron crystallography is used for refining structures obtained by X-ray methods, while electron crystallography is used for determining protein structures, such as viral capsids and membrane proteins. This book provides a clear and very broadly based introduction to crystallography, light, X-ray and electron diffraction - a knowledge which is essential to students in a wide range of scientific disciplines but which is otherwise generally covered in subject-specific and more mathematically detailed texts. X-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy are the most commonly used methods for solving the structure of an organic or organometallic molecule. Although there are some advantages to using NMR spectroscopy, the spatial arrangement of atoms around a chiral center is more readily determined by the X-ray method than it is by NMR spectroscopy. This volume provides methods for modern macromolecular crystallography, including all steps leading to crystal structure determination and analysis.
