• called the atomic
  • During the early twentieth century, the physics and chemistry community largely accepted Boyle's corpuscular theory of matter-by now called the atomic theory-and X-ray crystallography was used to determine the position of the atomic or molecular components within the unit cells (by the early twentieth century, unit cells were regarded as physically meaningful).

  • fundamental
  • In particular, the lack of a solid education in fundamental crystallography among chemists, crystallographers, physicists and other participants prompted the Commission to develop itinerant schools, which are becoming a tradition. (iucr.org)
  • Toronto
  • The University of Toronto was also a hub of small molecule crystallography, with Stan Nyberg in the Chemistry Department and Norman Camerman in the Biochemistry Department. (iucr.org)
  • Spin
  • The International Union of Crystallography has recently established a commission on Quantum Crystallography, as extension of the previous commission on Charge, Spin and Momentum density, with the purpose of coordinating research activities in this field. (wikipedia.org)
  • In NMR crystallography the observed spins in case of organic molecules would often be spin-1/2 nuclei of moderate frequency (13 C , 15 N , 31 P , etc. (wikipedia.org)
  • method
  • X-ray crystallography is still the chief method for characterizing the atomic structure of new materials and in discerning materials that appear similar by other experiments. (wikipedia.org)
  • Within this one-day workshop we are aiming to create an up-to-date survey of the method of "Fragment Screening by Crystallography" as well as the presentation of results from its application in industry and academia. (iucr.org)
  • organic
  • When applied to organic molecules, NMR crystallography aims at including structural information not only of a single molecule but also on the molecular packing (i.e. crystal structure). (wikipedia.org)
  • E.g. polymorphism is an area of interest for NMR crystallography since this is encountered occasionally (and may often be previously undiscovered) in organic compounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • represents
  • Inspired by the etymology of the word "crystallography," such a work represents an act of lucid writing, which uses the language of geological science to misread the poetics of rhetorical language. (wikipedia.org)
  • work
  • Much of `mathematical crystallography' arose during the 19th century from the work of mathematicians, mineralogists, physicists and chemists. (iucr.org)
  • Volume
  • The MaThCryst workgroup had organized a school in Nancy that June, and from that event came a special issue on Mathematical Crystallography in Acta Crystallographica Section A in March 2006 (Volume 62, Part 2). (iucr.org)
  • potential
  • introduces this virtual issue with an article on Prospects for mathematical crystallography , where the potential of mathematical crystallography as an emerging field is examined from a sociological point of view, with a detailed and precise bibliographical analysis. (iucr.org)
