Tailoring structural and magnetic properties of Mn3-xFexGa alloys towards multifunctional applications

The crystal structures and magnetic properties of Mn3-xFexGa (x=0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1) alloys can be extensively tailored by different heat treatment conditions. This investigation sheds light on tuning the crystal structures of the materials via heat treatment towards wide functionalities for technological applications.

Crystal structure, interaction energies and experimental electron density of the popular drug ketoprophen

The crystal and molecular structures of the popular anti-inflammatory drug ketoprophen were examined. The centrosymmetric form of ketoprophen (β-ket) which was reported so far, was structurally, geometrically and energetically compared with the non-centrosymmetric form (S-enantiomer) of ketoprophen (α-ket). The molecules in both crystal lattices arrange nearly similar, with anti-parallel oriented benzo­phenone moieties.

Structures of collagen IV globular domains: insight into associated pathologies, folding and network assembly

Crystal structures of the noncollagenous domains of the collagen type IV α1–α5 chains provide structural insight into Alport's syndrome (a genetic kidney disorder) and the first views of the components of Goodpasture's autoimmune disease epitopes. These structures define key folding motifs for collagen IV scaffolding of basement membranes, support the operation of mechanisms for restricting the self-assembly of noncollagenous domains, and raise the possibility that homohexamers of α1 or α3 chains could occur in nature.

Small-angle neutron scattering studies on the AMPA receptor GluA2 in the resting, AMPA-bound and GYKI-53655-bound states

In this study, the behaviour of the detergent-solubilized tetrameric, full-length ionotropic glutamate receptor GluA2 in solution was investigated using small-angle neutron scattering. It was found that the GluA2 solution structure is preferentially in a compact form in the resting state as well as in the presence of AMPA and of the negative allosteric modulator GYKI-53655.

Three-beam convergent-beam electron diffraction for measuring crystallographic phases

A method of measuring the three-phase invariants of crystals in any space group by inspection of convergent-beam electron-diffraction patterns recorded under three-beam conditions is presented.

Accepted 24 August 2018

Unwarping GISAXS data

Grazing-incidence X-ray-scattering (GISAXS) images contain distortions caused by refraction and multiple scattering. A new method is presented for computationally unwarping GISAXS data. The experimental data is iteratively fit to reconstruct an estimate of the true underlying reciprocal-space scattering.
