Chemical Instrumentation Center — X-ray Diffraction

Proteum S Diffractometer

Bruker Proteum-R

The X-ray Laboratory in the Department of Chemistry maintains a Bruker AXS Proteum-R instrument, including a kappa four circle goniometer, MICROSTAR rotating anode X-ray source and PLATINUM135 CCD area detector for single crystal and capillary powder X-ray diffraction. This instrument is available for use by trained users in the BU community.  Structure determinations are also available on a service basis.

Additional information is available as a PDF Brochure.

To access the sample submission form, calendar, training information and Web resources for crystallography, please use the links in the sidebar to the right.

The X-ray Laboratory also provides structural determination services to the broader academic and industrial community.  Please contact us for more information on rates and scheduling.

Latest News Summer 2016:
Starting in July the CIC will offer a new 6 hour “boot camp” short course in small molecule X-ray crystallography (SMX) which will provide classroom and hands-on training for new users.  For more information please contact the SMX lab manager.
