Structure Determination by X-Ray Crystallography: Analysis by X-Rays and Neutronsby Mark F. C. Ladd
Synopses & Reviews
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 int the book, and solutions are available to instructors.
This book provides comprehensive coverage of the advanced use of X-ray and neutron crystallography for studying molecular structure. The new 5th edition covers analytical software including XRAY*, and offers new exercise problems and solutions.
Structure Determination by X-ray Crystallography has been received with acclaim by teachers, researchers and students of crystallography throughout the world since its first edition in 1977. The fifth edition is fully updated, and builds on past successes by presenting up-to-the-minute information on a variety of new topics.
