Instrument and Software

The primary diffractometer is a Bruker Quest with a Kappa goniometer, an ImuS molybdenum radiation source and optics, and a nitrogen-streaming low temperature device.  The primary programs used in the laboratory are the Bruker APEX routines and the SHELX programs by Prof. George Sheldrick.  

Funding Acknowledgement
