Single Crystal X-Ray Diffraction Facility


The single-crystal X-ray diffraction laboratories at the ICCBS provides access to the state-of-the-art X-ray diffractometers, and offers technical assistance in crystal growth, data collection, and structure refinement. The laboratory is open for collaboration to all structural chemists both at national and international level.

Our X-ray laboratories located at the H. E. J. Research Institute of Chemistry and Prof. Dr. Atta-ur-Rahman Laboratories has one brand new Bruker D8 VENTURE and one Bruker SMART APEX II Diffractometer, respectively.  The D8 VENTURE is equipped with new PHOTON-100 CMOS detector, high brilliance Cu microfocus X-ray sources and Oxford cryosystem low temperature device, whereas,  the Bruker SMART APEX II is equipped with CCD detector and Mo  X-ray source.  

Both laboratories are providing crystal structure determinations (80-400 K) of organic molecules including absolute structure determination of biologically active compounds.
