Electron Density Maps and Molecular Structures

(p.150) 7 Electron Density Maps and Molecular Structures
Visualizing the Invisible

Peter B. Moore

Oxford University Press

This chapter illustrates the computations and variations of the electron density distribution of unit cells. To enable computations, crystallographers use electron density maps which are figured as a mathematical equation of square average value and standard deviation within a single unit cell. Chemical interpretations are derived from these maps and interpretability is dependent on crystallographic resolution. the chapter also examines the analyses on the effectivity of molecular models with the measured diffraction data. Sample problems are provided at the end of the chapter.

Keywords:   electron density distribution, electron density maps, mathematical equation, interpretability, diffraction data, crystallographic resolution
