crys·tal·log·ra·phy

(kris'tăl-log'ră-fē),
The study of the shape and atomic structure of crystals.

crystallography

This combination of tools applied to crystallographically well-defined drug binding pockets yield higher quality GPCR clinical candidates, including allosteric and bitopic small molecules, before the expensive commitment of clinical trials.
The nonlinear decrease in permeability with clay loading, the apparent aspect ratio, and the observed crystallographically regular layer stacking order with a monolayer of polymer intercalated between the layers, are all consistent with a possible self-similar clay aggregation mechanism, in which the face-to-face associated layers are slipped in a staircaselike fashion.

And while NMR shows no signs of supplanting diffraction methods for solid structural analysis, Harris showed that it is an excellent complementary method in some crystallographically difficult systems, such as SiAlON and boron carbides.
