Structure Determination by X-Ray Absorption Spectroscopy — Including Applications from the Study of Molybdenum Proteins

Abstract

Since Dr. Eisenberger has already discussed in some detail the properties of synchrotron radiation and its utility for x-ray absorption spectroscopy, in my lectures I will concentrate on a description of the curve-fitting method of EXAFS analysis and the applications of this method to determination of the structures of molybdenum proteins. Today, I will begin by reviewing the nature of EXAFS, and then I plan to go into some detail on how one actually obtains structural information from an EXAFS spectrum. I hope this will give you an appreciation of what EXAFS analysis can and cannot do, and that you will eventually be able to read the literature and distinguish between some of the very good and very bad work that has been done in this field.
