Welcome to the X-ray Diffraction Laboratory in the Department of Chemistry at Texas A & M University.
We are a full service X-ray Diffraction laboratory offering state of the art instrumentation for the
analysis of solid materials. Our services include single-crystal and powder diffraction for Chemistry, Material Sciences and Pharmaceuticals. We are staffed by
trained Ph.D. scientists who employ the most up to date diffraction and X-ray techniques.
Please feel free to contact us about your diffraction needs.
- Single-Crystal and
X-ray Powder Diffractometery
High Resolutionand Two-Dimensional X-ray Powder Diffractometery
Molecular Structure Solution from single-crystal or powdered materials
Qualitative and quantitative phase analysis
Ultra-low temperature single-crystal diffraction
Polymorph and crystalline state Identification Powder Pattern comparisons
Identification of unknown materials by X-ray powder pattern search and match routines
Our Mission The purpose of our
laboratory is to provide X-ray diffraction analysis to the Texas A & M
University system and to educate our students in the science of
Crystallography. Our main focus is to determine molecular structure
from single-crystal samples and to perform high
resolution X-ray powder diffraction. We provide services to outside users.
We are a full service facility, able to determine the three dimensional structure of
molecules and solids, from single crystal samples. We can determine various structural
types from small inorganic solids to small macromolecules. (see our Brochure)
