Direct Phasing in Crystallography

Fundamentals and Applications

Carmelo Giacovazzo

International Union of Crystallography Monographs on Crystallography

Crystal structure solution provides important information for a wide variety of problems--material science, earth science, chemistry, and biotechnologies benefit by the knowledge of structural parameters. Direct methods are the most widely used techniques for solving the crystal structures of small molecules and are finding important applications in macromolecular crystallography. This book offers both a comprehensive description of the field and an invaluable reference tool and so will appeal to a wide variety of scientists.
