Molecular Structure Facility

Overview of Services

X-ray Crystallography is the ultimate structural characterization technique.  X-ray crystallography impacts all fields of chemistry and allows researchers from both organic and inorganic backgrounds to understand the three dimensional structure and connectivity of their compounds. This is a solid state technique. 

The data obtained are complementary with those from the Magnetic Resonance Research Center, the Mass Spectrometery & Proteomics Facility. and the Materials Characterization Facility. The data from all of the Facilities at Notre Dame are necessary for complete understanding of the nature of new compounds and materials.
