X-Ray Crystallography

Single Crystal X-ray Structure Determination

 

The X-ray Diffraction Facility at the Chemistry Department of FCT-NOVA provides a Crystallography Service for the determination of the three-dimensional structure of small molecules:

- Unit cell parameters and space group only

- Complete data collection only (Room temperature or under refrigerated nitrogen gas stream)

- Complete data collection and structure determination

- Absolute configuration determination

 

Crystals are evaluated under the polarizing microscope and selected if suitable for X-ray data collection and structural analysis. Data is obtained in the in-house X-ray diffractometer (Bruker D8 Venture with Mo-Kα and Cu-Kα microfocus dual source), and collected on a Photon 100 CMOS detector, according to experimental requirements. Dedicated software permits indexing, integration, scaling of data and 3D structure solution.

 

The 3D structure determination can be required under

* Includes: crystal mounting, data acquisition, structure solution and full refinement to publication quality
standards where possible, preparation of tables, CIF files and 1-3 diagrams for publication or reporting
purposes and determination of absolute configuration where possible. Co-authorship also includes submission
of CIF files do The Cambridge Structural Database and structure analysis.
