4.0 out of 5 stars Illustrates CSD well but mathematical side is too light, 10 April 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Crystal Structure Determination (Oxford Chemistry Primers) (Paperback)
This book describes the method and steps used to determine crystal structure very well. It also gives a good account of symmetry groups used in crystal structure, better than my lecture notes anyway. However for the actual mathematical treatment of diffraction, this book offers too much discussion and spends a lot of text describing the maths you'll have already known if you've done A-level or Advanced Higher physics. If you're unsure of the basic CSD method and symmetry then get this book, if you do not understand the mathematics of CSD spend your money on another book.

This review is from: Crystal Structure Determination (Oxford Chemistry Primers) (Paperback)
Some reviews of this book suggest that it is not that hot. X ray takes a life time and is very involved to understand, that is why it is so specialist, but to pass degree you only need a basic understanding. Trust me I have been there too so I know this fact. This book is useful, so use it and try not to worry about long drawn out lecture notes which are rubbish anyway.Drawing is always useful in X ray as it explains things to you that words can never do and saves time.Learn the fancy stuff when you have completed the degree.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book., 8 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Crystal Structure Determination (Oxford Chemistry Primers) (Paperback)
I am currently writing a thesis for my masters and this book has been fantastic for background reading regarding crystallography. Definitely worth a read, whether for a skim read to get a better understanding, or someone who needs a more detailed review.

5.0 out of 5 stars All in good order!, 4 Mar. 2004
By 
This review is from: Crystal Structure Determination (Oxford Chemistry Primers) (Paperback)
A good genera; introduction to crystallogrpahy, much of the information from a "hands on" point of view. The maths is kept to a minimum, and it is obvious that the author (an expert in the field) is keen to pass on useful advice. Highly recommended.
