The Bruker SMART APEX II is a top-of-the-line single-crystal diffractometer equipped with either Cu or Mo Kα radiation. This instrument is capable of molecular structure determination for a wide range of materials, from cryogenic (100 K) to elevated (400 K) temperatures. These include, but are not limited to, organics and biological small-molecules, metal-organic and organometallic complexes, and inorganic compounds. Data can be collected for users, or trained users may collect their own data.

For more information or about possible training, please contact Daniel Unruh at daniel.unruh@ttu.edu

Here's an example of a crystal structure that has been determined in the facility.
