Single Crystal X-ray Diffraction (SC-XRD) Webinar

Don´t let Disorder get you Down.

Disordered Structure Refinement (DSR) can help.

In this webinar we discuss one of the remaining challenges in single-crystal structure refinement and provide solutions for the proper description of disorder in crystal structures. DSR (Disordered Structure Refinement) performs semi-automatic modeling of disordered moieties using SHELXL. It contains a database with about 130 molecular fragments and their corresponding stereochemical restraints and fitting procedure to place these fragments on the desired position in the unit cell. In just a few mouse clicks, user-defined fragments are easily added to the database.

The program is also suitable for speeding up model building of well-ordered crystal structures. Using real-world examples, we demonstrate in this 40-minute webinar the ease of point-and-click modeling with DSR within the graphical user interface of APEX3. Model building made easy.
