Accepted 3 September 2014

High-symmetry embeddings of interpenetrating periodic nets. Essential rings and patterns of catenation

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.


Accepted 23 July 2014

An alternative method for data analysis in serial femtosecond crystallography

T. Zhang, Y. Li and L. Wu

Synopsis: A new diffraction data analysis method for serial femtosecond crystallography is proposed. This method is found to obtain satisfactory results.


Accepted 18 July 2014

The coincidence problem for shifted lattices and crystallographic point packings

M. J. C. Loquias and P. Zeiner

Synopsis: The coincidence problem for lattices, shifted lattices and crystallographic point packings is considered. The results are illustrated using a shifted square lattice and the diamond packing.
