The XStruct research group focuses on X-ray structures in general and Bio-Inorganic Chemistry in specific.
Single crystal X-ray diffraction (XRD) or crystallography is by far the most accurate way to obtain 3D structures of molecules at the atomic level. We use this technique to determine the molecular structures of several compounds, ranging from small (in)organic molecules, ionic liquids (IL's), metal-organic complexes and frameworks (MOF’s), bio-inorganic materials to modified DNA oligonucleotides and peptides.
The XStruct research group is part of the Department of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry at Ghent University.
XStruct is part of the UGent Advanced Chemical Analysis expertise platform:
