X-ray crystallography laboratory (XRD)

What is X-ray crystallography?

First of all, X-ray crystallography is an analysis technique that relies on the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with mater in cristallin form. In contrast with elemental analysis that helps identify and quantify the different components of a material, this technique makes it possible to study the different phases of crystalline materials.

In fact, X-ray crystallography is a method used to gather several different informations such as molecular and crystal structures ( bond lengths, bond angles, and conformation…) and for obtaining the absolute configuration of molecules within the solid state.

Besides, adding the Rietveld refinement method to this technique, makes it possible to characterize et quantify trace amounts of several components.

This technique can be applied to various industries such as:

  • metallurgical
  • ceramics
  • pharmaceutical 
  • medical…

How can we help you ?
