The Bruker D8 Quest Eco single crystal X-ray diffractometer is an advanced analytical instrument used for the determination of the three-dimensional atomic structure of single crystals. The instrument is capable of measuring the precise positions of atoms within the crystal lattice, providing valuable information on the chemical and physical properties of the crystal.
The D8 Quest Eco SC-XRD instrument is used extensively in materials science, chemistry, and biochemistry for the characterization of single crystals. It is used to determine the atomic structure of a wide range of compounds, including small organic molecules, inorganic compounds, proteins, and polymers.
SC-XRD is a powerful technique for the determination of atomic structure as it provides information on the three-dimensional arrangement of atoms within a single crystal lattice. In contrast, powder X-ray diffraction (P-XRD) is a technique that is used to analyze polycrystalline samples. P-XRD is used to determine the crystalline phase of a material, its crystal structure, and the degree of crystallinity.
The main difference between SC-XRD and P-XRD is that SC-XRD is used for the determination of the atomic structure of a single crystal, while P-XRD is used to analyze polycrystalline samples to determine their crystal structure and degree of crystallinity. Both techniques are important tools in materials science, chemistry, and biochemistry and are used to study a wide range of materials.
