International scientists have turned to cryo-electron microscopy rather than X-ray crystallography or nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to help them unravel the structure of a deadly bacterial toxin that rips holes in body cells.

Total reflection X-ray fluorescence was used to analyze saliva samples collected in duct of the parotid gland and the gingival crevice, finding P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Ti, Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn, Se, Br, Rb, and Pb.

Natural talc, hydrated magnesium silicate, forms underground over geological time periods, which is fine if you have time to wait and access to a deposit of the clay mineral. Now, X-ray diffraction reveals that a hydrothermal synthesis can be used to make the same substance in a matter of seconds.

We are proud to announce a new series of educational webinars run in collaboration with Chromedia, COAST, and SciMind, a product of the American Chemical Society. These webinars will build into a must-have set of tutorial materials for the analytical scientist.

In this article, the late Ron Jenkins, formerly of the International Center for Diffraction Data provides a brief but comprehensive overview of modern X-ray techniques.

The 1962 book, Fifty Years of X-Ray Diffraction, dedicated to the International Union of Crystallography on the occasion of the commemoration meeting in Munich, July 1962, by P.P. Ewald (editor), and numerous crystallographers has been digitized and put on the web as a free site by the ICU.
