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.
Synopsis: Crystallographic least squares properties are derived from discrepancy functions working in direct space.
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.
Synopsis: A new diffraction data analysis method for serial femtosecond crystallography is proposed. This method is found to obtain satisfactory results.
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.
