Sample Submission

A complete structure determination includes the following services:

  • Solution and refinement of crystal structures
  • Preparation of material for publication, if needed
  • Details of the crystallographic experiment (the "Experimental" section)
  • Preparation of molecular structure diagrams, and extended packing diagrams
  • Analysis of non-covalent interactions within the crystal
  • Deposition of the CIF with the CCDC
  • Response to reviewers' queries pertinent to the X-ray material during the publication process
  • For other services (unit cell determination only, data collection only), contact the crystallographer

For Non-USC Users

For non-University of South Carolina users, the charge for a complete structure determination is $500 per crystal.

Crystal Structure Submission Form

To submit a sample to the lab, complete as much of the crystal structure submission form [pdf] as possible or relevant and send with the crystals to the lab.
