The art of solving a structure from powder diffraction data has developed rapidly over the last ten years to the point where numerous crystal structures, both organic and inorganic, have been solved directly from powder data. However, it is still an art and, in contrast to its single crystalequivalent, is far from routine. The art lies not only in the correct application of a specific experimental technique or computer program, but also in the selection of the optimal path for the problem at hand. Written and edited by experts active in the field, and covering both the fundamental andapplied aspects of structure solution from powder diffraction data, this book guides both novices and experienced practitioners alike through the maze of possibilities.
W.I.F. David and K. Shankland are both at the ISIS Facility, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Chilton, Didcot. L.B. McCusker and C. Barlocher are both at the Laboratory of Crystallography, ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
