X-Ray Crystallography

The X-ray diffraction facilities in the Bennett Department of Chemistry feature a Bruker AXS D8 Venture single crystal X-ray diffractometer, which is equipped with a PHOTON CMOS detector, a Triumph monochromator, an Oxford Cryostream 700 low temperature attachment for the routine collection of X-ray diffraction data at 100 K, and a sealed Mo X-ray source. This instrument, which was installed in December 2013, was acquired with financial support provided by the National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation program (Grant Award No. CHE - 1336071).
