International cooperation in intensity data collection
The Commission on Small Molecules of the IUCr(SCM) has a program to
establish contacts between crystallographers lacking state-of-the-art
facilities for intensity data collection and crystallographers having
the capability of collecting at least one intensity data set per year
to assist those in need.
Requests for assistance in X-ray crystallographic intensity data
collection through the auspices of the CSM must be accompanied by a
Part 1 - The Project
- A. Structure for which data collection is requested including
chemical drawing and toxicity data and information on quality,
stability, and cell dimensions of the crystals.
- B. Potential significance of the result. What question will be
- C. Long range objective and significance of the project related
to this structure.
- D. Previous X-ray studies conducted as part of the project or
related to this project in the applicant's laboratory or other
Part 2 - The Laboratory
- A. Current staffing, in particular, how many crystallographers
in residence. Who is responsible for training in crystallography
and supervision of crystallographic facilities and instruments,
- B. X-ray diffraction facilities available within institute.
- C. Age and condition of any diffractometers in the institute or
university of the applicant.
Part 3 - The Applicant
- A. Education.
- B. Crystallographic training and/or experience.
- C. Publications
- D. Funding or support.
The recipient of the data and the supplier are to establish
between themselves policies concerning the publication of
results from the cooperative project.
