Introduction to Single Crystal X-ray Diffraction Training PHYSICAL CHARACTERIZATION


Introduction to XRD Geometry/Optics Training

Single crystal X-ray diffraction (SCXRD) is utilized to determine the crystal struc- ture of small molecules, extended solids, and large molecules such as proteins. It is a powerful non-destructive analytical technique, which provides information about the unit cell, formula unit, bond-angles, bond-length, coordination envi- ronment/number, geometry, and packing of the molecules within the crystalline lattice. The structural model is obtained as result of structure solution and re- finement using the X-ray diffraction intensity data collected with the aid of 4-axis goniometer. IAC Core Laboratory offers training on the microfocus dual-source (Mo and Cu) D8 Venture single crystal X-ray diffractometer from Bruker. This training introduces the D8 Venture machine and cooling system. Partici- pants will learn about the principles of measurement, capabilities of the instru- ment, data collection strategies, and evaluation of data quality. They will receive instruction on selection and mounting of the crystal and crystal screening. Gen- eral lab safety will also be discussed. PARTICIPANT PROFILE This course is intended for students and research professionals from KAUST who are eager to know the crystal structure of their freshly synthesized com- pound. PREREQUISITES • Active Badger account

This training is for experienced users who want to better understand theoretical and instrumental aspects of the XRD technique. Participants will learn about the capabilities and limitations of the various XRD machines available. Topics covered include: X-ray sources and detector systems; X-ray tubes; 0D, 1D and 2D detectors; BB and PB geometry; parallel beam; divergent slits, soller slits, monochromator; and resolution. This will greatly help users to select the best suitable XRD machine in terms of geometry/optics and resolution with regard to the quality and nature of their samples. PARTICIPANT PROFILE This course is intended for research professionals from KAUST interested in deepening their knowledge of the XRD technique. Basic knowledge of XRD ge- ometry/optics is required (for example, understanding the difference between BB (Bragg-Brentano) and PB (Parallel Beam)). PREREQUISITES • Active Badger account
