C. Bonneau and M. O'Keeffe


Accepted 29 August 2014

Analysis of rapidly synthesized guest-filled porous complexes with synchrotron radiation: practical guidelines for the crystalline sponge method

T. R. Ramadhar, S.-L. Zheng, Y.-S. Chen and J. Clardy

Synopsis: This report describes complete practical guidelines and insights for the crystalline sponge method, which have been derived through the first use of synchrotron radiation on these systems, and includes a procedure for faster synthesis of the sponges. These guidelines will be applicable to crystal sponge data collected at synchrotrons or in-house facilities, and will allow researchers to obtain reliable high-quality data and construct chemically and physically sensible models for guest structural determination.


Accepted 22 August 2014

From direct-space discrepancy functions to crystallographic least squares

C. Giacovazzo

Synopsis: Crystallographic least-squares properties are derived from discrepancy functions working in direct space.


Accepted 20 August 2014

Prediction of molecular crystal structures by a crystallographic QM/MM model with full space-group symmetry

P. Mörschel and M. U. Schmidt

Synopsis: A new crystallographic quantum-mechanical/molecular-mechanical model for the prediction of molecular crystal structures is described. Applications include polymorphic systems and molecules from the CCDC blind tests of crystal structure prediction.
