Some thoughts about the single crystal growth of small molecules


Spingler, Bernhard; Schnidrig, Stephan; Todorova, Tonya; Wild, Ferdinand (2012). Some thoughts about the single crystal growth of small molecules. CrystEngComm, 14(3):751-757.

Abstract

This highlight critically compares various techniques to grow single crystals when only a few milligrams are available of the compound of interest. The authors describe vapour diffusion, evaporation, cooling, and layering techniques, as well as crystallisation in gels. A table of successfully applied solvent/antisolvent combinations for initial screening is given. Additionally, a comprehensive table of 107 solvents with their boiling points, densities and dielectric constants helps to optimise the crystal growth.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
