X-Ray Crystallography Facility

The XRCF is equipped with two Bruker single crystal diffracometers. A dual source Bruker D8 Venture, four-circle diffractometer with a PHOTON II detector and a Bruker D8 KAPPA, four-circle diffractometer with a PHOTON 100 detector. An Oxford Cryosystems crystal cooling system is equipped on the instruments and data are routinely collected at 100K unless otherwise dictated by the experiment.

Several computers are available with the complete suite of Bruker AXS software for data processing, structure solution, least-squares refinement, and report production.

The Cambridge Structure Database is available on facility computers or can be downloaded from IMSS.

A PerkinElmer 2400 Series II CHN Elemental Analyzer is available for analysis of carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen content in organic and organometallic compounds.
