Crystal X-ray Diffraction

Single Crystal X-ray Diffraction facility: The single crystal laboratory was established in 2016 and provides crystallographic support to researchers within the college of Science as well as offering services to external users. Its located in Lab 0078 - Ground floor (Next to College Administration)The facility operates a STOE IPDS II diffractometer, equipped with a Mo X-ray source. Sample temperatures between 90 and 300 K are attainable using the Cryostream low-temperature device, enabling low-temperature and variable temperature studies of single crystals (phase transitions, spin-crossover phenomena, and crystal thermochromism). 

Services provided by the facility:

  • Single crystal structure determination of a wide range of small molecule:
  • Organic & inorganic crystals, organometallic compounds, coordination polymers, high-temperature solid-state materials.
