Charge density investigation of Stable Silicon(II) Monohydride

SC-XRD Application Note

Charge density investigation App Note, SC-XRD

This charge density investigation provides another example of the high data quality achievable with Bruker’s APEX II ULTRA and also shows the importance of rotating anode based systems in chemical crystallography.

Although microfocus X-ray sources can take over a larger amount of the workload which required a rotating anode in the past, the development of modern X-ray optics for rotating anodes, like the HELIOS optic for our TXS, has facilitated investigations previously impossible with an in-house instrument.
