A DIFFRACTOMETER FOR SMALL MOLECULE STRUCTURAL ELUCIDATION BY CRYSTALLOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    X-ray diffractometry provides an unambiguous means of identifying the 3-D spatial arrangements of atoms within molecules. As such it provides the definitive proof of structural hypotheses inferred from spectroscopic data and underpins the prolific activities of 12 ANU research groups. The existing 11 year old instrument is increasingly difficult to maintain and unable to deliver the precision now required. Funding for a modern X-ray diffractometer is requested. The new facility will support fundamental and applied research in the chemical sciences including the development of new functional materials, therapeutic agents and catalysts and will allow for the valuable training of graduate students in modern X-ray diffraction techniques.
