crystallography

 [kris″tah-log´rah-fe]
the science dealing with the study of crystals.
x-ray crystallography the determination of the three-dimensional structure of molecules by means of diffraction patterns produced by x-rays of crystals of the molecules.

crys·tal·log·ra·phy

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

crystallography

(kris″tă-log′ră-fē) [ crystal + -graphy]
The study of crystals. It is useful, for example, in examining complex molecules (e.g., DNA) or the components of kidney stones.

Anita Maguire, Director of the ABCRF, highlighted the strategic opportunity presented by securing the new SMART X2S system, which will enable hands-on routine access to X-ray crystallography to a large and diverse team of researchers focused on synthetic inorganic, organic, medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry, thereby enabling them to secure structural data on their compounds much more rapidly than would be possible through a traditional service provided by a dedicated X-ray crystallographer.
