Crystal Structure Analysis

This chapter provides information and advice about presenting crystal structure results in research journals, theses, posters, web sites, and other media. It focuses mainly on graphics and the production of suitable pictures of molecules and extended structures. Many programs, free and commercial, are available, with a range of styles and facilities. Some of the underlying concepts are described. There are ways of emphasizing important features, while unimportant ones can be omitted or made less prominent. Textual content should be used carefully. Numerical and other tables need to be constructed to suit their purpose, and content overload avoided, with careful selection. Posters must make a clear impact and not contain too much material or have a confusing design. Oral presentations should be practised. The internet provides opportunities for imagination and inventiveness. The archiving of results is also considered.
