The U.C. Davis Small Molecule X-ray Crystallography Laboratory is equipped with four Bruker AXS X-ray diffractometers; three Single Crystal and one Powder diffractometer. These include a D8 VENTURE Photon100 Kappa Dual source Mo/Cu (Iμs), an APEX-II Dual source Cu (Iμs) and Mo (sealed-tube) and an APEX-II Mo (sealed-tube) diffractometers, including a D8 Eco ADVANCE Powder X-ray diffractometer with Lynx-EX detector and 9 position sample changer. Each Single Crystal instrument possesses an inert atmosphere (N2) low temperature device for typical data collections at 90K with temperature ranges from 90K-230K and the APEX-II single source has an additional He low temperature device for data collection as low as 5 K.

The facility has several high-speed workstations. Primary crystallographic software is the SHELXTL suite of programs for structure solution and refinement. In addition, we license the Cambridge Structural Database for UCD students, researchers, and staff to use for searching and structural analysis.
