Review quote

"This book is the result of many years of research and practical experience, and overall provides not only useful infomration, but also a sense of the author's character that interested readers may also appreciate." ( Materials World , 1 July 2012) "It is not necessary to follow all the intricate mathematical treatment of matrices, Fourier summation, statistics and so on, in order to derive benefit from the clearly written text and the good range of worked examples". (Chemistry World, 1 January 2011)

Back cover copy

X-ray crystallography is a powerful and widely used method for studying molecular structures. Small crystals of the molecule are created and these are then investigated using an X-ray beam. The crystal scatters the X-rays in a characteristic pattern, which can be analyzed to reveal the exact structure of the molecule. This is the first textbook which examines and explains this method to users with only modest mathematical backgrounds and presents the theory and fundamentals in an easily comprehensible, self-contained way. The result is a must-have for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and professional users of single-crystal X-ray crystallography from many various disciplines. In order to aid with learning and understanding, exercises and solutions related to X-ray crystallography can be found on our website: www.wiley-vch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN978-3527-32794-2
