Understanding Single-Crystal X-Ray Crystallography by Dennis W. Bennett

Understanding Single-Crystal X-Ray Crystallography


Understanding Single-Crystal X-Ray Crystallography by Dennis W. Bennett

The first textbook for teaching this method to users with little mathematical background logically presents the theory and fundamentals in an easily comprehensible, self-contained way. The result is a must-have for advanced undergraduate students, as well as masters and graduate students and other users of single-crystal X-ray crystallography from many various disciplines.


This book is the result of many years of research and practical experience, and overall provides not only useful infomration, but also a sense of the author's character that interested readers may also appreciate. ( Materials World , 1 July 2012) It is not necessary to follow all the intricate mathematical treatment of matrices, Fourier summation, statistics and so on, in order to derive benefit from the clearly written text and the good range of worked examples .
