About IMSERC at Northwestern University

IMSERC’s mission is to further research at Northwestern by providing access to and educating students on the proper use of instrumentation needed for molecular structure characterization. The Northwestern University Integrated Molecular Structure Education and Research Center (IMSERC) has been established to educate Northwestern students to be scientific leaders of 21 st century, and support world-class research. The synthesis of small molecules fuels research of numerous core disciplines and interdisciplinary activities, including chemistry, molecular/cellular biology, drug discovery, chemical biology, translational medical research, materials, catalysis, nanotechnology and energy storage/conversion. All research at Northwestern utilizing novel compounds relies on IMSERC to characterize these molecules before application testing can begin. As a “one stop shop” for molecular structure characterization, all instrumentation and staff scientist offices are located in a single location.

Our Services (14)


ic

X-ray Crystallography

Price on request
  • Atomic structure determination from either single crystal or powder diffraction data using X-ray, Neutron, or Synchrotron radiation
  • Identification and purity analysis of bulk samples using powder diffraction (coupled with elemental analysis)
  • Total scattering methods for the structure determination of nanoparticles and amorphous materials
  • Two-dimensional micro-diffraction of samples with small volume (< 1 mm 3 )
  • In-situ monitoring of reactions, structural/phase transformations, and/or decomposition (coupled with thermal analyses)
  • Crystallization and/or co-crystallization of new compounds

Deliverables

Full structure determination provides atomic coordinates in three-dimensional space that can be used for publication purposes in peer-review journals. Coordinates and other structural metrics will be provided in a Crystallographic Information File (CIF) along with a report which contains refinement details and references.
