About this book

Advanced undergraduates and postgraduate researchers in macromolecular sciences not afford to unfamiliar with X-ray diffractions for obtaining structural information on biological substances, natural and synthetic high polymeric materials. This book is divided into three parts: fundamental, experimental and analytical, and the volume as a whole is intended as an intermediate textbook to bridge the gap between primers and specialist works. It presents a thorough treatment of principles and applications, and give full, practical details of experimental methods and treatment of results, many including examples of actual analysis.
