Advanced crystallography

The research area advanced crystallography contains a number of challenging and important methods that enable us to discover advanced details about several crystal structures. Some of the methods that are used are high pressure crystallography, electron density studies, photo crystallography, and the study of intermolecular interactions.

The methods connect the theory with practice which improve our understanding in how structures are built and why a specific material have certain properties. In the future it may be possible to predict how a material that is not ever prepared behaves; from its stability to properties.
