    Overview

    • Concise introduction to X-ray diffraction
    • Focus on practical aspects and new developments
    • Mathematical appendix

    Aims and Scope

    An excellent book for professional crystallographers!

    In 2012 the crystallographic community celebrated 100 years of X-ray diffraction in honour of the pioneering experiment in 1912 by Max von Laue, Friedrich and Knipping. Experimental developments e.g. brilliant X-ray sources, area detection, and developments in computer hardware and software have led to increasing applications in X-ray analysis. This completely revised edition is a guide for practical work in X-ray analysis. An introduction to basic crystallography moves quickly to a practical and experimental treatment of structure analysis. Emphasis is placed on understanding results and avoiding pitfalls. Essential reading for researchers from the student to the professional level interested in understanding the structure of molecules.

    "This completely revised edition is a guide for practical work in X-ray analysis.

Essential reading for researchers from the student to the professional level interested in understanding the structure of molecules."

    "Throughout the book, the mathematical bases of the concepts being described are given in an easily readable presentation. One particularly useful feature is the Appendix on mathematics, which deals with the main mathematical tools used in crystallography, namely matrix and vector algebra, basis transformation and Fourier transforms. The very clear presentation means that this section should be very helpful to the student with a weaker mathematical background.[…] This text is very attractively presented, with many fine & clear illustrations. It can strongly be recommended as an introduction to small molecule crystallography."
    Louis J. Farrugia, University of Glasgow

    "In conclusion, this comprehensive book is very well written and illustrated; it is a book written by a colleague widely recognized in the crystallography community. I recommend it to all structural scientists who are starting out in crystallography and want to understand crystal structure determinations of organic and organometallic structures; it is also an excellent book for professional crystallographers."
    Claude Lecomte in: Acta Cryst. 72/2016
