Research studies by using organic crystal structures are emphasized. Outline of crystal structure analysis, inter-molecular interactions, propitiates and reaction of molecular crystals are explained. There are many kinds of organic crystal around us. Pick-up the concept how to analysis and understand the properties and structure of organic crystals. Other important concept of special properties of organic crystal is also explained. Actual examples of organic crystal are introduced to understand the concepts. Especially, crystalline state reaction which is a dynamic phenomena in crystal is picked-up.
Students will be able to understand intermolecular interactions and crystalline-state reaction from theory to actual examples.
Crystal structure, molecular structure, X-ray, Structure Analysis, X-ray diffraction, neutron diffraction.
