UCI X-Ray Crystallography Facility (small molecule)

The purpose of the X-Ray Crystallography Facility is to structurally characterize single-crystal samples of organic, inorganic, and organometallic compounds using x-ray diffraction. The modern equipment provides researchers the ability to conduct rapid structural analysis. X-ray diffraction is often employed as the primary means of characterizing complex structures. Students, post-docs, and professors are encouraged to conduct their own experiments after a short training period.
