Symmetriebeziehungen zwischen verwandten Kristallstrukturen

Author: Ulrich Müller
Publisher: Vieweg+Teubner Verlag
ISBN: 3834817996
Release Date: 2011-10-27
Genre: Science

In der Kristallchemie und -physik spielen die Beziehungen zwischen den Symmetriegruppen (Raumgruppen) kristalliner Feststoffe eine besondere Rolle. In Teil 1 dieses Buches sind die mathematischen Hilfsmittel zusammengestellt: die Grundbegriffe der Kristallographie, insbesondere der Symmetrielehre, die Theorie der kristallographischen Gruppen und die Formalismen der hier gebrauchten kristallographischen Berechnungen. In Teil 2 des Buches wird die Anwendung auf Probleme der Kristallchemie aufgezeigt. Zahlreiche Beispiele illustrieren, wie man die kristallographische Gruppentheorie heranziehen kann, um Verwandtschaften zwischen Kristallstrukturen aufzuzeigen, Ordnung in die Unmenge der Kristallstrukturen zu bringen, mögliche Kristallstrukturtypen vorherzusagen, Phasenumwandlungen zu analysieren, das Phänomen der Domänen- und Zwillingsbildung in Kristallen zu verstehen und Fehler bei der Kristallstrukturanalyse zu vermeiden.

Direct Phasing in Crystallography

Author: Carmelo Giacovazzo
Publisher: Courier Corporation
ISBN: 0198500726
Release Date: 1998
Genre: Science

Direct methods are, at present, applied to a large variety of cases: X-ray, neutron or electron data; single crystal and powder data; small molecules and macromolecules. While direct methods solved in practice the phase problem for small molecules, their application to macromolecules is recentand still undergoing strong development. The fundamentals of the methods are described: in particular it is shown how the methods can be optimized for powder, neutron or electron data, and how they can be integrated with isomorphous replacement, molecular replacement and anomalous dispersiontechniques. Maximum Entropy methods are also described and discussed. Sets of test structures are used to verify, throughout the various chapters, the mathematical techniques there described and to provide practical examples of applications. This book will appeal to a wide variety of readers -offering both a comprehensive description of direct methods in crystallography and an invaluable reference tool. The first three chapters can be considered as an introduction to the field, with sufficient material to constitute a university course and for allowing the expert use of most directmethods programs. Subsequent chapters are aimed at graduate students and working crystallographers. Basic results are described and discussed in the main body of the text, while the appendices compliment these with in depth mathematical details. The quoted literature is extremely wide and theinterested reader can find suggestions for future work and further reading throughout the book.

X Ray Charge Densities and Chemical Bonding

Author: Philip Coppens
Publisher: International Union of Crystallography
ISBN: 0195356942
Release Date: 1997-05-08
Genre: Science

This book deals with the electron density distribution in molecules and solids as obtained experimentally by X-ray diffraction. It is a comprehensive treatment of the methods involved, and the interpretation of the experimental results in terms of chemical bonding and intermolecular interactions. Inorganic and organic solids, as well as metals, are covered in the chapters dealing with specific systems. As a whole, this monograph is especially appealing because of its broad interface with numerous disciplines. Accurate X-ray diffraction intensities contain fundamental information on the charge distribution in crystals, which can be compared directly with theoretical results, and used to derive other physical properties, such as electrostatic moments, the electrostatic potential and lattice energies, which are accessible by spectroscopic and thermodynamic measurements. Consequently, the work will be of great interest to a broad range of crystallographers and physical scientists.
